ELLICOTTVILLE, N.Y. (WIVB) – With warmer temperatures starting to melt snow on the slopes, skiers took advantage for an afternoon of fun in Holiday Valley on Saturday.

The ski resort hosted the 2014 Pond Skimming event. Skiers started at the top of a hill and tried to make it across a stretch of water at the bottom.

There were awards for Best Skimmer, Best Costume and Best Splash.
