Pond skim

The annual pond skim will be held at Big Sky Resort on April 21.

The grand finale of one of the snowiest seasons in Big Sky Resort’s history — the annual pond skim — will be held on April 21. 

Brave souls dressed in outlandish costumes are invited to ski or ride the headwall of Ambush in an attempt to skim across a pond of water on snowboard or skis. 

Registration begins at 10 a.m. in front of the Basecamp to Yellowstone building in the plaza at Mountain Village. Skimming begins at 2:30 p.m. The event, sponsored by Samuel Adams, is limited to 100. Registration is $25 per person. Spectating is free. 

Ramcharger Chairlift will operate until 5 p.m. for Sunset Saturday. The other chairlifts will close as usual at 4 p.m.
