Get stoked; Big Sky sets a date for its insane annual pond skim

As winter winds down, the season of pond skimming is upon us. In the coming weeks, we will be enjoying a wave of awesome wrecks, slams, and wet and wild times from resorts across North America. Big Sky, Montana, is set to host its annual pond skim on Saturday, April 18 at 3:00 p.m. MST at the base of its Ramcharger chairlift. The resort’s annual fling attracts more than 5,000 viewers, while participants get extreme and test their skills on the water. Per usual, the event will surely be a damn good time. If you need any convincing, just watch the evidence from last year’s event, above.
