pats peakHenniker, NH, March 5, 2013 – Pats Peak, New Hampshire’s premier snowsports destination, announces its annual Pond Skim Contest on Saturday, March 16, 2013 starting at 1pm on the Bluster slope.

This is a great event for participants and spectators. Participants ski or snowboard across a man-made pond or take the icy plunge on their skis or snowboard! Registration is from 8:30am to 11:30am. Entry Fee is free but the purchase of at least a Bluster Area Lift Ticket (or Pats Peak Season Pass) and a costume is required to enter the contest. Prizes will be awarded for Best Costume, Best Splash and Best Skim.

There will also be a Live Band and a Killian’s Red/ Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer Garden.

“The Pond Skim is a fun springtime event. Our skiers and riders get dressed up in some crazy costumes and try to make it across the pond. The spectators love to see them make a big splash but it’s also fun to cheer for them if they make it across the pond,” says Jim Wall, Events Director.

Time is running out to get a 2013/2014 Pats Peak Season Pass at the lowest rate. Purchase on or before April 1, 2013 for the 2013/2014 season at great low rates! Pats Peak Season Pass rates remain affordable in order to allow individuals and families to spend more time on the slopes without financial burdens. The average adult who purchases a weekend lift ticket seven times, would be paying more than the price of an Adult Unlimited Season Pass. Simply choose the season pass that fits you and your family best. The “Peak Reward” Unlimited Season Pass Program is another great way to save money for you, family, friends and organizations of all sizes with a minimum of ten (10) family members and everyone receives a discount and as the Leader, begin receiving the rewards.
