Pond Skim Rules:

  • Must go one at a time (no teams).
  • Must be on skis or snowboard.
  • One run only.
  • Your total score will be based on the creativity of your costume, how well you "live" your costume, and the style, difficulty, bail height, and splash of your crossing (if you sink you may get extra points). A successful crossing means nothing to the judges. This is all about style!
  • All scoring and selection of winners is solely and completely up to the judges.
