Pond Skim at Mt. Bachelor
Watch as courageous participants try to make it across the 100 foot long pond on skis or snowboard without wiping out at the annual Pond Skim event at Mt. Bachelor! The Pond Skim event is judged on three separate components – style, distance and appearance (i.e. costume). Contestants launch themselves, preferably in costume, onto the pond and ride their boards across the surface. If you don’t know how to swim, you had better wear a life jacket – the water is sure to be cold. Prizes for best costume and best skim will be awarded. Winners will be determined based on the combined score of two runs.
