 mophie InstaJam

To add to the pre-pond skim excitement, mophie will host a 1 hour rail jam at Canyon Lodge.  The jam will be open to everyone.  Competitors will hit a single custom feature for a chance to win cool mophie swag.  Winners will be awards as tricks are completed. Just show up and sign a waiver at the rail set up. 

Bikini Contest

Eight girls will be chosen at random from the crowd to participate in the new Bikini Contest.  Girls will need to complete a series of questions and/or activities; winners will be based on crowd cheers and judges opinion.  Each winner will receive a beach-y prize and will be crowned a Pond Skim Score Girl for the duration of the event.  Wear your bikinis (or just the tops) for a chance to enter. 

Score Girls 

Three ladies, chosen during the Bikini Contest, will strut their spring stuff on the judges mound to hold up skimmers scores.  Each girl will be assigned to a judge, after a judge has given a skimmer their 1-10 score, the Score Girl will hold up the appropriate score card to the crowd.

The Podium

The top three skimmers will be awarded a prize back with swag from Mammoth’s partners.  As skimmers complete their pond run they will be awarded a score from the judges.  Top three skimmers will take their spot on the podium and stand up there until they are knocked out by a fellow skimmer.  At the end of the skim the winners will be awarded their prizes.  Additional prizes will be awarded by judges.
