ELLICOTTVILLE, N.Y. (WIVB) - Ellicottville is still celebrating winter weather and everything it has left to offer.
On Saturday, Holiday Valley held its Spring Pond Skimming Party-an event where only the lucky ones remain dry.
One of two outcomes can happen: Skier's can slide down slopes, hit the water at the base of a hill, and skim safely across the pond surface. Or, the surface tension of the water breaks and the skier takes a dip in the freezing cold water.
Those who attended the event were seen wearing Toga costumes.
Another feature of this year's party was a cardboard box race down the hills. Racers were given points for creativity, style, and ingenuity of their boxes.
Prizes were awarded to all pond skimmers, and top prizes were awarded to those with the best outfit, best skimmer, best crash, and best child.
