The World’s Most Exciting Pond Skimming Competition Returns to NorCal this Weekend

The premiere spring skiing event in Northern California is taking place this weekend on Saturday, May 4th at Squaw Valley Resort. The event is the 29th Annual Cushing Crossing, where spring skiing enthusiasts dress like it’s summer and attempt to cross a miniature lake near the Squaw Valley lodge.

For one day out of the year, it’s the pond skimming capital of the world.

This is the event that put pond skimming on the map in Northern California and it reminds all skiing enthusiasts to never forget to laugh. The event starts at 1 pm and will be live streamed on Squaw Valley’s Facebook Page and viewers will have a chance to win prizes from Oakley and Yeti.

Here is what you can expect to see at the event:
