Skiers and boarders young and old braved icy waters at the Whitewater Slush Cup on Sunday. Participants rode down the hill towards the pool, hoping to gain enough speed to stay on top of the water. A handful made it across successfully, but most wound up swimming off the course. Prizes were handed out for biggest splash and best costume.
