Viewing by month: March 2009
The first annual Pond Skimming & Season Pass holder party was a big splash! Locals and those staying at Snow King for the near end of the season enjoyed quite a show. The day started off tame with a few people skimming the pond, but that didn't last long once the competitors realized the pool was deep enough for a soft landing. The aerials, flips and costumes got more outrageous as the day went on. There was always a big line of those waiting to skim. The event was actually held up for 30 minutes during the day so the folks from Snow King could refill the pool, add a rail slide and build a bigger jump! Even the Snow King Ski Patrol decided to get into the action.
The word from Snow King's Mountain Operations department is: We can't wait to do this again next year! Snow King Season Pass holders enjoyed the benefits of a free lunch and a beer from Snow King's outdoor Snow Bar - something almost 400 Season Pass Holders took advantage of. Season Pass holders were'nt the only people having a great time. Those in attendence enjoyed the music of The Blue Grass Band, great weather and a steady stream of talented Skimmers!
This wasn't just an event for big kids. The little ones had a great time too.
Snow King even let this guy skim the pond.
