I’m not going to speculate yet on the outcome of the 2009/10 season, because who knows, if all this rain turns into snow for just one day, there could be some life left in the season after all. However, the end of March and the beginning of April often marks the coming of a cherished past time in ski towns and areas across the country. Yes, POND SKIMMING. Many events took place this last weekend, but as the article linked here, notes, there are many events still to come at areas such as Mt. Sunapee, Loon, as well as some of the larger mountains in Vermont such as Sugarbush and Mad River. We’d love to get some first hand pics from any of the events from competitors and apres’ers alike.
I wanted to highlight a snow bunny skimming and found this pic…
Yeah, she didn’t make the “Snow Bunny” cut, but I applaud the bikini nonetheless. I mean, with the exception of the dude at the top, few people can actually make the event look good, which explains why most events are sponsored by beer companies. I’ve never participated in an event myself, but if I did, I’d probably go with something a little more subtle than the fella below, but again, its the effort that counts.
Ok, so after this guy, there’s really nowhere else to go with this post. Bottom line, these events get ridiculous, which is what makes them so much fun. Enjoy whats left of the season, and let us know if you find yourself participating in a pond skimming, or 0therwise festive spring time tradition.
