Pats Peak, New Hampshire's premier snowsports destination, announces its annual Pond Skim Contest on Saturday, March 17, 2018. The Pond Skim event starts at 1pm with registration from 8:30am to 11:30am.
Participants try to ski or snowboard across a man-made pond or take the icy plunge. The entry fee is free but the purchase of at least a Bluster Area Lift Ticket or Pats Peak Season Pass and a costume is required to enter the contest. Entry is limited to the first 100 participants. Prizes are awarded for Best Costume, Best Splash and Best Skim.
“Every year this event is a big hit with participants and spectators. It’s always fun to see the costumes that participants come up with. Some of them make it across but many of them take the plunge into the pond and the crowd loves seeing them make a big splash,” says Jim Wall, Events Director.
