Pond Skim 

When the snow starts to melt, the sun comes out and it’s the perfect time to throw on  boardies and come up to the Thredbo Pond Skim. Nothing beats a season ender party in the pond!

Participants will receive one attempt to cross the pond successfully. All participants who successfully skim the length of the pond during the first round qualifiers will advance to the finals, where skimmers can receive a total of 30 points based on three elements:

  • Making it across the pond – 10 points
  • Costume – 10 points
  • Style and crowd response – 10 points

Based on the scoring system it is possible to win the Thredbo Pond Skim without making it across the pond in the finals.

Judges are encouraged to judge costumes on craftsmanship, creativity and time spent putting the costume together.

There will be prizes for the top competitors as well as best costume, best splash and more!
