There aren't too many ski areas still open in North America at the moment, but for the few with the lifts still turning, the pond skim is where the action is. It's something every die-hard skier needs to try at least once in their life, and now the competition is getting even stiffer. Next year, Ski Banff-Lake Louise-Sunshine will team up with POWDER Magazine to host the First Annual Pond Skimming World Cup. Qualifying skims will occur across North America and then the international competitors will convene on Banff in May 2016 to battle it our for Pond Skim World Cup Champion. You have a year to practice, now GO.
