Dummy Launches & Rock Band Fun During Griz Day (26-Feb-10)

Fernie Alpine, BC, Feb 26, 2010 - A highlight of Fernie's

A highlight of Fernie’s winter Griz Days festival is the Dummy Downhill Competition that will enter into its 27th year at Fernie Alpine Resort on Sunday March 7th.  Strictly for fun, this competition features imaginative & hilarious dummies on skis, launching off a gigantic jump beside the Timber Chair. Dummies can be made from a variety of materials and creativity is stressed! Dummies are judged based on their construction, creativity, distance they fly off the jump, and the carnage factor when they land.  Spectators and families LOVE this event and it is one not to miss!  Thanks to our title sponsor Raging Elk Hostel and Kodiak Lounge.

Raging Elk Dummy Downhill Schedule - Sunday March 7th
12pm: Dummy check-in and weigh-in at bottom of the Timber Chair
