Nothing like closing out an El Nino season with a blizzard and a pond skim! Thank you all for coming out, braving the elements, shredding pow, and skimming like there’s no tomorrow! It just wouldn’t be right to send off this season with a bland day, so Mother Nature dropped 12″ of new snow this weekend along with one long Slush Cup celebration!

The results are in for the Slush Cup awards! Congrats to Michael for a 24/25 season pass and Nettle, Quinn, and Tania for gifts from NAO. Everyone who participated in the Slush Cup is a winner in our eyes, but these few went above and beyond!

Best Costume: Nettle Hart

Most Committed: Tania De La Cruz

Best Skim Style: Quinn Slayton

Overall Winner: Michael Dale

Other honorable mentions include Nancy Peel and John Jensen.

Thank you to our swimmers on ski patrol, without you none of this would be possible.

Thank you all for competing! We look forward to seeing you next season for more! There’s no place like Eaglecrest, and like you, I am just happy to be here. After all, it’s not ‘goodbye’, just ‘ski you later’!
