Pond Skim-Purple Guy

Seventy-seven daredevils of all ages participated in Holiday Valley’s annual Pond Skimming event March 24. As spectators cheered them on, hardy souls on skis or snowboards zipped down Yodeler Slope at breakneck speed in an attempt to skim across the icy water of a pond built from snow. The event was said to be “one of the best pond skims, ever.” The winning contestants were: Nicolett Thomason dressed as Wonder Woman, Best Skim; Greg Metzen dressed as a London Guard, Best Costume; Chloe Matina dressed as an angel, Best Kid; and Doug Colligan dressed as a police officer, Best Splash.
