The Raging Elk Dummy Downhill was smashing
Snow wasn't the only thing falling out of the sky during the Raging Elk Dummy Downhill at Fernie Alpine Resort. Animal creations on skis and snowboards were released down the slope to launch off a giant jump in hopes of achieving the biggest air. Dummies ranged in titanic proportions from a stealthy jet to the ghetto bicycle and Digger the rescue dog.
Dummies can be made from a variety of materials; creativity is stressed but they cannot weight more than 100 lbs. Judges based their decisions on construction, creativity, distance dummies fly off the jump and the carnage factor when they land.
All the funds raised with this fun event are donated to the Canadian Cancer Society.
