Nor'Beaster :: Bud Light Pond Skimming

Base of Superstar Trail
Sat Apr 14

A wacky rite of spring, skim the pond or watch while others try.


Registration for Pond Skimming will open at 9:00 a.m. at the Roaring Brook Umbrella Bars. The entry fee is $10 (cash or check only). There will be no pre-registration for this event. This event is open to both skiers and snowboarders and is limited to the first 100 registrants.

All participants must fill out an Express Assumption of Risk Form. If you are under 18, you will need a parent/guardian to sign your form. 


  • All participants must be 48 inches or taller to participate.
  • There will be a mandatory competitor's meeting at the top of the pond at 10:45 am.
  • Please remove all valuables (jewelry, watches, sunglasses, etc.) prior to your skim. Killington will not be held responsible for any items lost in the pond.
  • No ski poles or nudity.
  • The event starts at 11:00 am and competitors run in bib order. Don't be late or you will not get your turn to skim the pond. Once the event starts, it runs very quickly, so be ready even if you have a high number.
  • If you fall into the pond on your skim, please do not try to walk out of the pond. Wait for our staff to pull you out and get you to the reinforced exit area. Following this procedure will help us to ensure the pond does not rip and drain out prematurely.
  • If you do not follow these rules, you will be disqualified.
