Registration opens March 15. Skimmers from all parts of the globe are gathering floaties and flippers and making the annual migration to the Vail Valley. Many will compete for fame and glory, while others have their eye on the grand prize, “The Golden Skimmer.” They are the unsinkable athletes that will showcase their water solubility on Lake Golden Peak Sunday, April 20, from 3-4:30 p.m. in a showing that defies the laws of physics and perhaps even common sense.
Highlighting the Spring Back to Vail festivities, the World Pond Skimming Championships Presented by Red Bull is open to anyone and everyone that believes they can make it across the pond. It is guaranteed to be a wet and wild good time and all participants will receive a base layer from Helly Hansen! Participants must be 14 years of age and older. The top male and female finishers will receive a 2014/15 Epic Pass from Vail as well as a pair of Liberty Skis and Helly Hansen base layer!
