TSV wraps season with annual Pond Skimming spectacular

Posted

Taos Ski Valley celebrated the end of a long, snowy season on Sunday (March 7) with its annual Pond Skimming Championships.

Dozens of fearless skiers and snowboarders attempted to skim across a pool of ice-cold water while donning everything from inflatable T. rex suits and Green Goblin costumes to unicorn onesies.

This year, the famed championships were held in front of the Phoenix Grill, allowing plenty of space for competitors to splash, flip and (rarely) skim successfully across the pond. Following the event, prizes were awarded for the best costumes, worst crash, best skim style and hero of the day. For more, visit the photo gallery at taosnews.com.
