Sno Kona Pond Skim Recap



Snowboarding News | Thursday May 03, 2012 | Shared By: Mt Hood Meadows Ski Resort

The 6th annual Sno-Kona Pond Skim last Saturday at Mount Hood Meadows was a great success! Spectators packed the base area to cheer on the 100 brave competitors skimming across the 90 foot pond. Nearly 70 competitors made it across the pond their qualifying run, leading to a spectacular final round. Tory Robinson, dressed as James Bond, freed a woman in distress, killed a couple bad guys and then surprised everyone when he dropped to his knee and proposed to Sabrina LaGood, who accepted and is now his fiancé! Watch the video here. View Grant Myrdal's final round photos here.

• 1st Place - Tory Robinson, was James Bond and won a trip for 2 to Hawaii!

• 3rd Place - Erik Brown, dressed as a robot and won a $50 gift card to Portland's Bamboo Grove Hawaiian Restaurant
