Watch as some of the top skiers in North America show off their skills in a one of a kind event put on by Monster Energy. Skiers will start at the top of the Lizard Headwall above Fernie Alpine Resort with the same goal of beating all other competitors in an all-at-once race down to the base at the bottom of the resort. Did we mention the winner gets $20,000??
This 2 day event will begin Friday with Qualifying runs in the Lizard Bowl. Athletes will race down Lizard Bowl ski cross style (4 skiers at a time) to qualify for a spot in Saturday’s main event. Qualifiers start at 12pm. Come out and watch a few heats and then heat into the plaza for the main stage, event gardens and live DJ's all afternoon.
Saturday will be the main event with the qualified skiers lining up on the Lizard Headwall to race to base. Race is set to take place at 12pm, however depending on snow conditions on the headwall the start time maybe moved earlier. Check the Fernie facebook page and snow report on Saturday morning for the exact start time. After the event join us in the plaza for Event Gardens and tunes from the Monster DJ crew (DJ Pump, DJ Illo and Vinyl Ritchie). End the day at the Enemy Lines After Party up in the Legendary Griz Bar. Doors open at 8pm and no advance tickets are available so get there early!
Best viewing areas for both days will be at the Bear’s Den (located at the top of the Elk Chair) or finish line (base area outside the rental shop). Spectators will also be allowed to watch from top of the Bear Chair and Bear load stations.

The Lizard Bowl will also be CLOSED, Saturday, April 5th in the morning from 9am to approx 12:30pm for the Final event. Lizard Bowl will re-open on both Friday and Saturday following the event.
