Lake Tahoe Pond Skimming World Championship (Heavenly Mountain), April 11th
The legendary Gunbarrel 25 might have all the claim to fame during the springtime festivities, but the pond skim is a true annual tradition that can’t be missed. It’s the ultimate rite of passage for any real skier or snowboarder worth his/her weight in powder during the winter months. Come see participants ski or board themselves off a snow jump in the hopes of coming out on the other side in style. Funky costumes are encouraged for this chilly endeavor.
As the days get longer and the sun creeps higher, spring is THE time to visit Tahoe South. And these springtime festivities just add more flair to what might be the greatest place to vacation in March, April & May!
