Last Run Luau Pond Skimming Sends Winter 2013/14 out with a Splash!

April 06, 2014
Some brave hearted souls took on the Last Run Luau Pond Skimming challenge sponsored by Shock Top on April 5th 2014 at Waterville Valley Resort.
 
The 100ft icy cold pond was a daunting and wet feat for many participants as they attempted to ski or ride across in hopes of making it to the other side judged by the Waterville Valley Resort team of Olympians; Hannah Kearney, Kris Freeman, and Olympic Coach Bill Enos.  Hannah Kearney and Kris Freeman both participated in the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia where Hannah was awarded with a Bronze for Moguls after receiving a Gold in 2010.  Coach Bill Enos also received the Gold Order of Ikkos after coaching 2 American snowboarders to Gold Medals in Slopestyle.  The trio enjoyed their break from the spotlight and got a few laughs as participants splashed their way across the pond.
 
Many fell short and took a splash!  None more notably than the cannonball extraordinaire and Best Wipe Out winner, Taylor Stanley.  Onlookers felt the pain as well, as water splashed over the brim leaving them soaked from waist down.  Tucker Grass mastered the pond on a monoski, making it all the way across each run in his Duke Basketball costume, winning himself Beach Bum (crowd) Favorite.  Tucker wasn’t the only one sporting some unique duds.  Naturally many people took it upon themselves to show their Hawaiian support with leas, flower prints, and some dressing down to nothing but shorts!  Things got a little crazy when Santa showed up, AKA Matthew Jacobs.  Matthew took home a more appropriate winter jacket after winning himself Best Costume.  Prizes were awarded in Buckets as participants warmed up and grabbed a Shock Top.  While Hannah Kearney and Chris Sununu passed out awards DJ Mike Kelly kept the crowd entertained with games and challenges, including a frozen t-shirt contest. Bradley Swan and Steve Larkin took the top spot for longest ride on a snowboard and on skis respectively.  Jamie Souza was awarded Mini Surfer of the day.  Hands down Surfer Style (best style) went to Jason Garange after he hit the pond on only 1 ski and making it across no problem!  
 
CEO, Chris Sununu and Olympian Kris Freeman couldn’t let everyone else have all the fun and made the executive decision to give it a go.  Even though Kris Freeman specializes in Nordic skiing he had no problem crossing the pond in perfect form.  Unfortunately, that was not the case for Chris Sununu.  While a valiant effort was made on both attempts he fell just a bit short of the finish.
