Skim the pond event

Mt Buller News - - ON AND OFF THE SNOW -

SKIM the pond at the an­nual and now very pop­u­lar Corona Ex­tra Pond Skim event on Bourke Street on Satur­day, Septem­ber 17.

It’s all about crazy cos­tumes, silly stunts and a gi­ant out­door pool party to cel­e­brate Buller at its best - in spring.

The party con­tin­ues pool­side with apres-ski in the Corona Ex­tra Beer Gar­den, then things heat up (thank­fully for the com­peti­tors) at the Of­fi­cial Corona Ex­tra Pond Skim Après Party at Moose­head.

DJ Eddy will be pump­ing the beats, head judge Pete Hel­liar leads the com­men­tary, and Corona sup­plies the re­fresh­ments.

Gal­lant ef­forts from the com­peti­tors are re­warded with a bath about the same tem­per­a­ture as the Coronas, de­liv­ered straight out of the snow­mak­ing hy­drants.

Of course the Na­tional Cham­pi­onships are a se­ri­ous af­fair with over $8000 in cash and prizes, in­clud­ing $1000 cash and a 2017 Sea­son Mem­ber­ship for our cham­pion.

The waves don’t stop with the fi­nal com­peti­tor - DJ Eddy con­tin­ues the pool­side après-ski vibes in the Corona Ex­tra Beer Gar­den un­til 5pm, then again at the Of­fi­cial Corona Ex­tra Pond Skim Na­tional Cham­pi­onships Après Party from 8pm at Moose­head.

It’s go­ing to be ab­so­lutely splash­ing time.

The fun starts at 12pm with the Ju­nior Pond Skim be­fore mov­ing on to the se­niors sec­tion at 2pm.

CRAZY STUNTS: Sit back and watch as skiers stunt their way through the Pond Skim.
