Poised to skim the pond?
The Canyons Resort will host its annual Pond Skimming Contest this Saturday beginning at noon.
At mid-mountain, just outside Red Pine Lodge, registered skimmers (on boards or skis) will don inventive costumes to slide down the hill in an attempt to glide across a shallow 100-foot pond.
The entry fee is $20, which does not include a lift ticket, and participants must be at least 10 years old.
Contestants vie for awards in several categories from "best costume" to "best splash."
A free concert featuring JJ Grey and Mofro will follow at the Forum at The Canyons.
