2012 CBMR Slush Huck Pond Skim

This year's Pond Skim got 10's across the board!

The weather this Saturday was absolutely perfect for CBMR’s annual Slush Huck Pond Skim festivities. But just because the sun was out didn’t mean the water wasn’t still freezing cold! When the wakes and waves had settled the defending world champ Gabe Martin had been knocked from his throne by CBMR Ski School’s own Gregory Gull. A big West Elk Project congratulations to Gregory for his victory! However, we can assure him he has not seen the end of Mr. Martin, not by a long shot. We believe a new rivalry has been born!

The switch run should have won!
