Raging Elk Cardboard Derby

All photos by T. Hynd

The Raging Elk Cardboard Derby had a case of beer, sharp pencil, day glow banana and even a helicopter at Fernie Alpine Resort this afternoon. The Powder Bros Express train eventually derailed, leaving the crew picking up their boxcars. The massive Viking ship, complete with dry ice and dragon, came to a stop when the fierce Viking threw out the anchor. After ripping off his shirt and grasping his newly engaged fair maiden fiance for a kiss, the shirtless viking ventured forth pushing the entire shipwreck to the fluorescent target.
