Mammoth Mountain pond skim: sunny, warm, weird & fun this Sunday

Posted By: Zeke Piestrup on April 16, 2010 10:10 am

Mother Nature will once again shine her approval at Mammoth Mountain’s Annual Spring Fest Kick Off Party & Pond Skim.  That’s a mouthful, but it’s the last part, pond skim, that all snow enthusiasts get super amped up about.  But, a pond skim under cold temps or rainy weather is just an exercise in forced fun.  But, a pond skim under sunny skies and 55 degree temps is an exercise in absolute fun.

Mammoth forecast for Sunday:  mostly sunny, 55 degrees, and absolute fun.

Mammoth Mountain’s Canyon Lodge is the Cowboys Stadium of pond skims.  The base lodge provides a massive crowd for all Bart Simpson look-at-me heros of the pond skim.
