This Spring Ski Celebration Is The Perfect Way To Bid Farewell To Winter

Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort in Hancock, Massachusetts is host to one of the state's most beloved spring celebrations.

With warmer temps, softer snow, live music, and so much more, Spring Fling 2020 is an event you won't want to miss!

This year's festivities fall on March 21st & 22 and feature bargain lift tickets for just $59.

There will be fun races for all ages and abilities, a Cardboard Box Derby, an outdoor DJ, a pie eating contest, and everyone's favorite - the Pond Skimming Contest. 

Races include the Bikini Slalom, where participants zoom down the mountain in nothing but their bathing suits.

The Jiminy Peaker Race features a 6-8 age group and a 9-12 age group, and the Snoopy race is for the littlest skiers of all, children ages 4-5.

Teams of all ages and sizes are welcome to participate in the Cardboard Box Race where innovative sledders create their own snow vessels from nothing but cardboard and duct tape!

All team members must wear helmets and be able to ride in the Box at one time. Several different prizes will be awarded for various categories.

The famous Pond Skimming Contest features skiers and snowboarders zooming downhill and across a pool at the bottom. They are judged on the distance they go before sinking into the icy water.
