22nd Annual Pond Skimming

April 07, 2018
Location: Red Pine Lodge

The Pond Skimming Contest is Park City's 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. DJ Velvet will be there dropping beats during the event. 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 will need a lift or gondola ticket to watch. Then, hit up the Canyons Village for a free concert.  

Event schedule and date subject to change. Registration will open on March 1, 2018.
