Welcome to the second annual Swim the Snake swim!  This is a challenging open-water event that gives participants the opportunity to swim the scenic Snake River.  The event serves as a fundraiser for the Blue Mountain Resource Conservation and Development Council, the Dayton Swim Team and the Pomeroy Swim Team.

Swim The Snake is a recreational swim (not a race!) across the Snake River from the former Lyons Ferry State Park site (north) to the Lyons Ferry Marina (south).  Ambitious swimmers may choose to swim BACK across the river.

Entry Fee: $30 (add $5 for XXL shirt).  Includes a T-shirt, swim cap (required to wear), and return transportation to parking on the north side of the river.
