Doggie Paddle

NEW THIS YEAR! Join us for the Doggie Paddle during intermission of the Tiki Pond Skim. You could win a new pair of skis or a snowboard. 100% of proceeds support the Donner Summit Avalanche Dog program.

Ok so here’s the scoop - two ski patrollers will race to paddle their inflatable dog rafts across the pond at the Tiki Pond Skim. You’ll be able to use your betting skills to guess which dog is going to win. How you might ask?

  1. Starting at 11am: Purchase raffle tickets from Donner Summit Avy Dogs
  2. Place your raffle tickets in either the wiener dog or golden retriever ticket box.
  3. Race is at 12pm. Whichever inflatable dog wins the paddle race, a raffle ticket will be pulled from that winning dogs ticket box.
  4. One lucky person will win either a snowboard or skis!

A reminder that spectating and heckling is free. Pond is a short walk from the Village Lodge. See you out there.
Tickets are 1 for $5 or 3 for $10.

Tiki Slam Social Contest. Anyone in the crowd can win!


Hecklers Gonna Heckle....

Spectators are free and always welcome! If you miss the chance to sign up for the pond skim, don't worry. You still have a chance to win. By capturing the best video or photo of a slam and tagging @sugarbowlresort and #tikislam you could win a prize as well!

Pond Location

In case you were wondering where this pond is going... Here's a technical rendering of the pond location.

Located between the Nob Hill and Disney Chairlifts, this pond location allows easy access to spectators (within walking distance of the Belt Room Bar) a steep run in for ample speed, uninterrupted views of the sunny sky, and close earshot proximity to hecklers from the Nob Hill Chair lift.
