Waterville Valley Pond Skimming
Over the Weekend I participated in my first ever pond skimming event at Waterville Valley. I was asked to judge the event alongside mogul skier Hannah Kearney.
After watching about 30 spectacular wipeouts and a handful of successful crossings it was my turn to make an attempt. I don’t own any traditional alpine equipment so I used my telemark skis. Use this link to see the video.
Afterwards my parents and I took a picture with the Executive Chief of Waterville Valley, Chris Sununu. He has been a great supporter of me.
Chris came up a few meters short in his skimming attempt but didn’t seem to mind to much.
This weekend I am flying to the JDRF Indiana Promise Ball Fundraiser to benefit Type 1 diabetes research. My girlfriend Amber is coming with me and it should be a lot of fun.
