WATERVILLE VALLEY — Bid Aloha to the ski season with a splash. Pond skimming returns to Waterville Valley Resort on April 5th during the 2nd Annual Last Run Luau.
Pond skimming registration will be open to the first 75 brave hearted competitors and is free with a valid 4/5/2014 lift ticket or 2013/14 season pass. Registration will be held from 8-10 a.m. in the Base Lodge with the race starting at approximately 12:15 pm on the World Cup trail. Come early, sign up and take a few slushy runs before heading over to the "pond!" Spectators, otherwise known as "Beach Bums" are welcome to take part in cheering on competitors as they splash their way across the 100 foot. pond. After the pond skimming there will be an après and awards party hosted by Shock Top on the Buckets deck starting at 2:30 p.m. prizes will be given out for Longest Run for skiers and riders (21+ and 20 and under divisions), Beach Bum Favorite, Surfer Style, and Best Wipe Out. Get creative and dress up for a chance to win the Best Costume prize. The après will include music from DJ Mike, giveaways, and $4 beer specials!
Everybody can get a little bit "quacky" before the skimming starts by purchasing a duck for the first ever Quacktacular Duck Race at noon. Purchase a duck at the ticket window in advance for $3 to be entered to win. All proceeds will benefit the Whole Village Family Resource Center in Plymouth.
