We were on a spring road trip through the Pacific Northwest and—armed with skis, wetsuits, surfboards, and a full camper—on the hunt for anything that looked fun. 

We found this half-frozen pond in the North Cascades that beckoned to be skimmed. Drew Tabke, the former Freeride World Tour champion booted up, and I threw on my wetsuit and grabbed my underwater camera housing.

It all came together better than I expected.
