Pond Skim event on the water at Mount Hood Ski Bowl in Oregons Mount Hood Territory

Mt. Hood Skibowl boasts several annual ski events in March that are quite unique and always entertaining (hint: see image above). Mark your calendars and get up to Mt. Hood for these special upcoming events.

Mt. Hood Skibowl's 17th annual Pond Skimming Contest is taking place March 24. This fun event takes traditional skiing and turns it on its head, as participants decked out in some truly crazy attire attempt to ski across a pond at the bottom of a hill. Some make it, and many wipe out in spectacular fashion, making for some fun viewing. Did we mention the costumes? You haven't lived until you've seen a T. Rex blasting down a hill trying to make it across a pond. 

As if that wasn't fun enough, there's also giveaways and contests while the "Suds on the Slopes" has tastings of regional beers and spirits. 

A week later, Skibowl brings back their annual Ski for Sunshine event. Skiers and boarders can ride for free from 9 am to 4 pm. All they have to do for this serious savings is to bring 10 non-perishable food items, which will benefit the Portland Sunshine Division. The event is celebrating it's 30th running this year, and in that time the generous skiers have donated more than 60 tons of food. 

Each of the events combines the wonderful traditions of snow sports on Mt. Hood with the unique experiences that only Mt. Hood Territory can offer. Be sure to bring your camera and share your photos on your favorite social channel using our #omht hashtag so we can join in the fun.
