The pond is water hazard just west of the Lenawee Lift. Lake Reveal (named for an incident in which
a woman's clothes became more revealing after she failed to skim the entire pond and sank) forms seasonally at
Arapahoe Basin. June 1st might be an average date for it's first formation.
Successfully skimming Lake Reveal can be a risky undertaking on weekends. The trails surrounding it
Humbug are busy (by the time Lake Reveal forms, much of the mountain is
closed due to the danger of wet snow avalanches. Since A-Basin suffered an extremely rare inbounds
wet snow fatality on
in 2005, they've been really cautious about wet spring slides)
and it requires a significant amount of speed through a crowd to successfully skim to the other side.
Pond skimming Lake Reveal, or spectating as others skim, is a good diversion on a June day when much of Arapahoe
Basin is closed.
