Boarders and skiers tried to make it across a wide open vat of nothing but water. Some made it. Sadly, Superman (Nathan Armstrong that works in the rental shop at Wintergreen) wasn't one of them.

Nelson County, Virginia

In what’s become an Ode to Winter, the annual Splash & Dash (or Pond Skimming) was held this past Saturday at Wintergreen Resort. This year’s event included 45 contestants.


Thanks to David Brokamp for the video above. Danny Watson of Nellysford successfully makes it over the pond this past Saturday – March 21, 2015.

Though the calendar says it’s officially spring, winter can still play a few tricks on us in the coming days, but for the most part minds are now on warmer days ahead!
