To celebrate what would have been the 13th Annual Sno-Kona Pond Skim at Mt. Hood Meadows, we are holding a photo and video contest! Dig out your best clips and/or photos from past Pond Skims you participated in and post them on Instagram or Facebook using the hashtags #MtHoodMeadows and #SnoKonaPondSkim and tell us which category or categories you're submitting to: Best Splash, Best Skimming Style, Best Costume, and Best Retro Submission (must be from a Pond Skim 10 years ago or older). If the video or photo you submitted is not of yourself, make sure you tag the person in your post. We'll be accepting submissions through Saturday, May 9, and will be announcing the winners the afternoon of Monday, May 11. The winner of each category will receive a spot to compete in the the 2021 Sno-Kona Pond Skim!

And join us for a special Facebook Live viewing party at 1 PM Saturday, May 2, with scheduled guests KGW Chief Meteorologist Matt Zaffino (who has judged every Pond Skim at Meadows); Bruce Kuper (the Pond Skim King) and Willie Levin Levenson of the Human Access Project. We’ll watch highlights from over the years, celebrate with a Kona Brew or two and rejoice in Pond Skims past.
