The Splashdown Pond Skimming Championships hits Steamboat once again on Closing Day - Sunday, April 12th! Wrapping up another iconic season at Steamboat, this event has antics like you wouldn't believe. The Splashdown Pond Skimming Championships brings brave (and slightly crazy) skiers and riders in costume with a dream of crossing the icy pond successfully and, if they're lucky, with style! Online event registration begins April 1 and check-in is on April 12, 2020 at the Coca-Cola tent in Gondola Square from 9:30 – 11:30am. A limited number of spots will be available for onsite registration on Sunday 4/12 beginning at 9:00am at the Coca-Cola tent in Gondola Square.
9:30am-11:30am: Participants must check in at the Coca-Cola tent in Gondola Square or their spot will be released
1:00pm: Pond Skim begins, first come, first serve basis
Award ceremony will immediately follow the end of race.
This one division event has skiers and riders, men and women, children and adults all competing head to head to be crowned the 2020 Splashdown Pond Skimming Champion. Skimmers will be judged on the following criteria: costume, distance, style, crowd response and air!
