Beech Mountain Resort celebrated the end of its ski season last weekend with a March 12 “pond skimming” contest.
The festive event drew a legion of fearless skiers and snowboarders who tried to speed down the slopes with enough momentum to skim across a small man-made pond built in to the middle of the hill. This video captures several of the triumphs, as well as a few of the less successful attempts.
