Ending the Winter Season with a Splash!

Pomerelle Mountain - Tuesday, April 10, 2012

              Ending the 2011-2012 Winter Season With a Splash! 

Skiers and boarders tested their skills at skimming the length of an icy cold pond at the Slush Cup Pond Skim held Saturday, April 7th. 

Competitors ranging from ages 10 to 36 dressed for the occasion. A "Red Hot" chili pepper, a group of super heros, Peter Pan & Big Air Granny were just a few characters seen skimming the icy water. 

"It is definitely the coldest water I have ever been in!" said Michael Westfall, the hippie, after taking the icy plunge in his attempt to cross the pond, skimming switch. 

The event delivered a lot entertainment for the crowd.  Spectators cheered on each smooth glide... leaving the skimmer high and dry. Bigger cheers were heard when competitors lost their balance and toppled creating crowd pleasing splashes! 

Snowboarder, Evan Chess, earned the award for Biggest Splash after flying high and BELLY FLOPPING into the pond! 

Skier KJ Redder, dressed as Peter Pan said, "That was the most fun competition I have ever been in!"   

Awards were given for best skim, best costume & biggest splash.
