ANNUAL NORTH AMERICAN POND SKIMMING CHAMPIONSHIPS

May 26 @ 10:00 am - 1:30 pm

Registration coming soon

After a pow-filled winter & spring, it’s time to give the season a proper send-off and skim into summer with the return of our annual North American Pond Skimming Championships! Join us on Sunday, May 26 for the final day of our 2023/24 season to take your last run of the season in style across our epic 100-foot long pond AND for your shot to win a Winter 2024/25 Mt. Bachelor Full Season Pass!

We’re inviting 100 registered skimmers to show up in their Sunday best and attempt to make it across the pond without wiping out. Each registered participant will get ONE run, and one run only…so be sure to make it a good one! Participants will be judged by a panel of local celebrity judges, so be sure to send it!

RULES:

  • Open to ages 13+
  • Helmets are mandatory for all participants
  • Only one skimmer will be permitted to skid across the pond at a time (no group skimming)
  • Skis, Boards, Snowskates (with leash), and Snowblades are all permitted — no poles and no Snow Bikes — skimmers must remain in control at all times
  • Costumes are highly encouraged…the whackier and wilder, the better (just please keep it PG and tasteful)
  • No alcoholic beverages are permitted within the event area

PRIZES:

To top it all off…the best of the best from each category will be sliding away the ultimate prize, more skiing at Mt. Bachelor! (Winners will be determined based on a single scored run)

  • Overall Winner – Season Pass for Winter 2024/25 & a GoPro Hero 12
  • Best Dressed – Spring Pass for Winter 2024/25
  • Fresh Steezed (Best Style) – 4-Day Pass for Winter 2024/25
