Skim the pond at

Four judges will grade participants in the categories of style, air, crash and miscellaneous. The highest score will will a 2019-2020 season pass to Snowbasin.

Organizers describe this year’s pond as the longest Snowbasin has ever had, at 90 feet.

Spectators are admitted free. The cost to participate is $10, and costumes are required. All funds will be donated to a local nonprofit.

Check-in begins at 9 a.m. Saturday, followed by a participant meeting at 10:30 a.m. The Pond Skim begins at 11 a.m.

Following the Pond Skim, a deejay and dancing will be offered, with an awards ceremony at 2:30 p.m. on Earl’s Patio.
