Park City Mountain presents its famous 22nd Annual Pond Skimming Contest! It's one of those traditions that has been wild from the start. Contestants must dress in costume (the funkier the better) as they attempt to cross a 100-foot pond on skis or a snowboard. The pond and the excitement happen at mid-mountain just outside Red Pine Lodge. Limited to the first 100 registrants, and must be 10 years of age or older to enter.
Celebrate. Compete. Watch. Ski. Ride. Grüv.
