Squaw Pond Crossing Video
The annual event features over fifty contestants and hundreds of spectators turning out to watch local lunatics and adventurous guests attempt to cross Lake Cushing. The goal is to get enough speed down the snow ramp and make it to the opposite side of the lake without falling. This contest is notorious for cannonball-sized crashes, hilarious costumes and ultra-creative pond skimming contraptions. Judging is based on style, grace, flair and of course, successfully crossing the lake.
