Pond Skimmers celebrate end of ski season
WHITEFISH, Mont. -

Whitefish Mountain Resort celebrated the last few says of the season with the annual Pond Skim Saturday afternoon.

Hundreds of folks flocked to the lift plaza to watch skiers and snowboarders dress up in costume and take their runs across the man made pond. Each year the mountain adds a few twists to the usual skim. On the second run, competitors had a choice between a jump or a limbo pole. The third run featured a string of money dangling above the pond.

Organizers gave out prizes for best costume and best crash. Whitefish Mountain Resort closed down their lifts on Sunday.
