A highlight of Fernie’s winter Griz Days festival, this competition features imaginative & hilarious “dummies” on skis launching themselves 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!!
On top of having fun, participants and spectators will have the opportunity to raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society! Teams are encouraged to get pledges from families and friends. On top of the regular prizes for best distance, construction, creativity etc we also have a prize for the team that raises the most money! Get building your dummy today!
