Pozza dei Mat 2016: mad people for a great party!


APRIL 5, 2016 - BORMIO

On Sunday April 3 the tenth edition of Pozza dei Mat (Pond of Mads) took place in Bormio 2000. The 'mad' people were the absolute protagonist of the day showing some great performances at the pond contest.

Pozza dei Mat: the craziest party of the winter!

Over five thousand people reached Bormio 2000 to watch the pond show: a blend of carefreeness, enthusiasm and levity that totally set the whole Bormio Ski on fire for this final season party.

The participants, about one hundred, made some great acrobatics trying to cross the pond of freezing water, using style and creativity.

For the category 'Challenge' we saw a few skiers attempting the pond crossing. Some made it nicely and some totally not For the category 'Jump', instead, the mad people jumped directly into the pond from the kicker. The great finale, as always, was all for the category 'Mat' (mad): some really alternative vehicles made a marvellous appearance. Everyone tried to pass the pool but a just a small few, to be honest, made a pass all the way across the pond. Some lost the pieces, some lost members of the crew but the result was always one: an hilarious and phenomenal show which captivated the attention of the crowd.

After the contest the day continued with a focus on music: a sensational live concert in Bormio 2000 and a dj set at the après skis Bewhite and 30m2.
