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.
