Pond Skimming Championships rewards a winner

GHENT - A ski resort hosted an annual event on Saturday to celebrate warmer weather as ski season comes to a close.

Staff members at Winterplace Ski Resort said their Pond Skimming Championship is a fun way to wrap up the season. Water from the melted snow makes for a great shallow skimming pool to see who can get the farthest before sinking into the freezing water. It is a $10 entry fee to join in the fun and all proceeds go to the Beckley Area Foundation. The Pond Skimming Champion won a mid-week season pass for next year's ski season at Winterplace.
