The zaniest of all spring events, Pond Skimming on March 25th challenges skiers and snowboarders to try to skim across an ice water filled pond at the bottom of Yodeler. Some will make it all the way across, but many end up getting very wet (and cold!).
The Holiday Valley Mudslide is a mudrun that's really, really FUN. Yes, you'll get muddy, yes there is running, yes there are lots of obstacles but NO fire, NO barbed wire and NO electric shocks!

They will be celebrating their 34th year in 2023!
