A March blizzard isn't exactly was Peek 'n Peak was hoping for on this weekend of Springfest.
"A year ago today we had to close (the slopes) because the snow was all melted," said Brad Gravink, Director of Mountain Operations.
But it wasn't all bad for business at the ski resort.
"For the skier it doesn't get any better than it is out there today," said Gravink.
Conditions were prime for skiing, but at the bottom of one slope was a unique twist that could have you going for a swim.
It's known as pond skimming, and it's a Springfest tradition that challenges skiers and boarders to go down a hill and skim across a 40 foot man-made pond, without falling in.
At least a dozen brave souls signed up for the feat this year. Crazy costumes were optional, but not required.
Some challenged themselves, and some were dared by others.
"I keep seeing videos like on the computer of it and it seemed really fun, I've always wanted to try it," said competitor Jason Kern.
"All my friends wanted me to try it, so I was like, I'll do it," said Addison Aude, who works in the resort's rental shop.
"It just sounded like something that'd be fun to do," said Barry Stanton of the resort's ski patrol. "I opened up my mouth and committed and here I am."
Competitors this year had it a little tougher than in years past.
"The last time we did it was about 55 and sunny," said Gavink."Much more conducive to skimming across water."
Nonetheless, most seemed pretty confident they'd make it across.
"I'm a good snowboarder so I think hopefully I can do it," said Aude, who donned a clown suit for the event.
"Yea hopefully," said Kern, I don't really want to get completely soaked."
some did cross unscathed, but some, including Aude and Stanton, went for a freezing cold dip.
"I thought I had the speed to make it," said Stanton, who took a rescue toboggan across with him in full ski patrol form. "Once the toboggan hit the water it just drug me back and slowed me way down...it's cold, it takes your breath away."
Having winter weather at Springfest wasn't ideal for taking a swim, but the Peak doesn't mind the extended ski season after a late start.
"We got so much snow we're gonna be here til into April skiing," said Gavink.
