K-1 Lodge, Base of Superstar Trail


Registration and Rules

Registration for Pond Skimming will open at 9:00 a.m. at the Roaring Brook Umbrella Bars on Saturday, April 19.  The entry fee is $10. No discounted competitor lift tickets will be sold, because participants can hike the event venue. There will be no pre-registration for this event. This event is open to both skiers and riders and is limited to the first 100 registrants.

  • All participants must be 48 inches or taller to participate in the pond skimming event.
  • 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. Save time and fill it out now!
  • There will be a mandatory competitors' meeting at the top of the pond at 10:45 a.m.
  • 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 a.m. 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.
  • This event is open to both skiers and riders, age 10 & over, and is limited to the first 100 registrants.
