26th Annual Cushing Crossing – Squaw Valley Sat April 16 2016
Get ready to have some fun at the 26th Annual Cushing Crossing in Squaw Valley, today, Saturday, April 16, 2016.
I went to this event a couple of years ago, and it is one crazy, fun spring event that everyone will have fun at.
Skiers and snowboarders ski down the hill, in crazy costumes and attempt to skim across Cushing Pond, which is located at the top of the Village at Squaw Valley, just past the KT Bar and Plaza area.
This is a contest and participants are awarded for their crazy costumes and for how far and well they skim the pond as they compete for some great prizes. Some contestants will make it across the pond in style, while others will crash with a big splash into the pond.
It’s fun to see how the judges score each participant which receives points for costumes, originality, style, and of course how they skimmed the pond, and if they made it across the pond. You will find yourself cheering and laughing as the 50 registered participants give it their all at the Annual Lake Cushing Crossing event!
If you go be sure to take along a folding chair, and wear sunscreen. While there is plenty of seating that is already set-up, but since this is a very popular event, by the time we arrived, it was standing room only. Plan ahead and bring a folding/camping chair with you so you can enjoy the event in comfort.
