SPRING GRÜV: POND SKIMMING CONTEST

Canyons Events

All listings are subject to availability and subject to change.
3/22/2014 - 3/22/2014

Canyons presents the 7th annual Spring Grüv. For 10 days we'll be having huge, free concerts in the Resort Village, as well as the famous Pond Skimming Contest! Our annual Pond Skimming Contest will be the first event of Spring Grüv. It's one of those traditions that has been wild from the start. The Pond Skimming Contest is Canyons' most popular party and is the true indicator that spring has arrived. Contestants must dress in costume (the funkier the better) as they attempt to cross a 100-foot pond on skis or a snowboard. The pond and the excitement happen at mid-mountain just outside Red Pine Lodge. Must be 10 years of age or older to enter.  Spectators will need a lift or gondola ticket to watch. Then, hit up the Resort Village for a free concert with Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real and Cody ChesnuTT

NOTE: No outside alcohol is allowed in for our spring concerts. We will have food and beverage options available in the Resort Village, so don't worry! And, please carpool. Celebrate. Compete. Watch. Ski. Ride. Grüv. On-site registration is only available the day of the competition in One Sweet Ride shop.

Pond Skimming Registration is now closed, as we have reached our capacity.
