Are you ready to challenge the pond?


Bormio, 04/10/2012 - The seventh edition of La Pozza dei Mat is getting closer and the "pozza group" is already making preparations for the event keeping an eye on all the weather forecast websites to understand what kind of weather conditions we are expecting. In the meantime we are digging the hole wich will host the 30 x 15 meter- pool that only the brave will be able to cross.

Last year we had 262 courageous participants who challenged the pond but not many were able to cross it. Many had to take an off-season bath which surely was reinvigorating in those 450.000 liters of water! To watch the event about 6,000 spectators and so if the previous edition was such a big success our wish is to do the same this year hoping in the clemency of the weather. Glancing the forecast now it looks like we will have snow or rain but the weather is changing rapidly and we will give you a final confirmation on the date within Thursday evening when forecasting will be more believable. Only in case of certain real bad weather the event will be postpone to Sunday April 22nd.

Meanwhile, tomorrow morning we are digging. You can follow the work in progress on our webcam page.

If you haven't signed up yet do it soon because registration is only open to Friday April 13th, 2012!!!! And now watch this snowboarder and how he challenged the pond in 2011. You think he made it?

We remind you that the official video of La Pozza dei Mat will be released by Foto Pozzi: cost € 15,00

So let's keep our fingers crossed and see you on Saturday April 14 at 4.00 p.m. with "Bikini Wet Party" @ BeWhite and 30 m2 for a very fun party and well.. wet!

And then on Sunday April 15th from 10.00 a.m. the contest of the pond, following Live Music in Bormio 2000 with City Kaos and then the "Feston dei Mat"  and lottery draw from 5.00 p.m. again @ BeWhite and 30 m2.

Happy end of season everyone!
