Popular Spring Gruv And Pond Skimming At Canyons Resort

Canyons Resort will kick off its popular Spring Grüv event with a pond skimming contest on March 24. People dresses in various costumes will try to ski or snowboard across a pond of open water. It’s hilarious, as you can see from the embedded Youtube video blow.

Canyons Resort provided this information:

“Our annual Pond Skimming Contest will be the first event of Spring Grüv. It’s one of those traditions that has been wild from the start. The Pond Skimming Contest is Canyons’ most popular party and is the true indicator that spring has arrived. 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. Must be 10 years of age or older to enter.”

Spectators are welcome to show up and watch. If you want to participate in the skimming contest you need to pre-register. See the Canyons website for details.
