Blue Mountain Resort plans to end their 2018-2019 winter season this Saturday, March 30th, with their annual Pond Skim Event. Guests are invited to end the year with a splash taking part in an annual tradition among ski resorts across the country. The event signifies the end of a winter season but also the start of a summer season!
Trails will close for the skiing and riding season Saturday, March 3oth at 4pm, but not before some big-time celebrations take place! Lift tickets will be $40 starting at 8am and will go to $30 from 12pm-4pm. Guests can purchase tickets online or at a ticket window.
Guests are also invited to end the season with a splash on Saturday, March 30th, at the Annual Pond Skim event, sponsored by Shea’s Hardware in Palmerton! Participants who skim across the pond located on the Vista Trail will win a free t-shirt! Registration is free but requires a lift ticket to participate. Guests can register from 9am – 11am in the Alpine Room, with skimming starting promptly at 12pm. Spectators do not require tickets and are encouraged and will be able to walk out onto the Vista Trail where the event will take place. Participants under the age of 17 require a parent or guardian signature.
