It's time for the 6th annual Sno-Kona Pond Skim at Mt. Hood Meadows, presented by Kona Brewing and All About Hawaii! Snowboarders and skiers, get ready to launch yourself across 90 feet of frigid water, where you can win a free trip for two to Hawaii.
All competitors must be 21 or over. Cost to participate in the Pond
Skim is $30 per entrant, which includes a complimentary Kona beach
towel and celebratory Kona beer. The event will be ran in REVERSE ORDER of registration (those that register first, skim last). Pre-registration has CLOSED for the event. Day of registration may be open depending on availability, and costs $40. (As of 3:30 PM on Friday, there are 10 spots left.) Ski poles
are not allowed in the competition.
All participants will receive one attempt to cross the pond successfully. All participants who successfully skim the length of the pond during the first round qualifiers will advance to the finals, where skimmers can receive a total of 30 points, based on three elements - whether you make it across, your costume, and style/crowd reaction. In the event of ties, the judges will deliberate and award the overall winner.
Participants can receive a maximum of 30 points, and will be judged on the following during the final round:
• Making it across the 2nd time - 10 points
• Costume - 10 points (scale of 1-10)
• Style and Crowd Response - 10 points (scale of 1-10)
Judges will be encouraged to
judge costumes on craftsmanship, creativity and time spent putting the
costume together. It's not a race to see who can wear the skimpiest
costume or shock the crowd.
Competitors must check-in at Mt. Hood Meadows, in the Alpenstube Restaurant lobby area, between 8 AM - 9:30 AM the day of event. Skimming will start at 10:30 AM. Fill out this form in order to speed up the check-in process.
We'll have prizes for the top three places, as well as best costume, best splash, and best impression made by a woman. Let's not forget about the grand prize of a round trip vacation for two to Hawaii!
