The pond skim is a hallmark of spring for skiers and riders, and no season would be complete without one. Whether you're brave enough to take the plunge or prefer to watch at a safe, dry distance, this is one event you can't miss before the lifts close for good.

Here's a roundup of the best Mid-Atlantic skimming action happening this weekend: On March 22, Seven Springs puts season passes on the line during their 12th annual pond skim. March 21-23 marks Wintergreen's annual pond skimming weekend with costumes required for competition. And competition heats up for skiers, riders and sledders during the Meltdown Games at Appalachian Ski Mountain, March 22-23.
