RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- With 34 inches of new snow in just one week, it's a great time to head up to Northstar for their annual "Spring It On" event.
Participants can enjoy plenty of activities, including the highly anticipated pond skim contest. In this event, snow skis turn into water skis.
The pond skim is free to enter, but is limited to a maximum of 75 competitors. The Pond skim will take place Sunday from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Free face painting and balloon twisting are also available at the Lodge at Big Springs, as well as a scavenger hunt that runs Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m..
Currently, Northstar is offering season pass holders 40 percent off lodging through the rest of the 2013 and 2014 ski season.
