Pond Skim

Pond skim is sourced from Northern Europe, it is also called as härdsmälta or winter meltdown.  It is an activity to celebrate the end of winter and the beginning of spring.  People usually wear costumes and ski or snowboard downhill into a pond, and skid over water to the other side of the pond.  If the momentum is not enough people then fall into water and have to climb out with skis or snowboards attached onto their feet.  Usually audiences break into laugh or cheer.

Here are some photos of pond skim from Hyland Ski Areas.

Pond skim marks the end of ski season, we will keep our figure crossed to hope no more snowstorms.
