15th Annual Pond Skim Contest

Skiers and boarders test their balance and bravery—and try to stay dry—as they race down the mountain and attempt to “skim” across our skimming pond. Prizes awarded to the best finishers, including a Meier snowboard and Praxis skis, both featuring a colorful and awesome Sierra Nevada design (pictured below). Plus heaps of laughter—and perhaps a few wet clothes—guaranteed!

The man-made “Lake Sipapu” is about 75 feet long, 3 feet deep and filled with 30-40 degree river water. Reps from Sierra Nevada will be on the mountain pouring craft beer, and giving away brewery logo swag during the event and aprés until 6 p.m.
