Slope Soaker pooled competitors

Fernie Alpine Resort celebrated its last day of the winter season with crowds cheering the bold competitors at the annual Coca-Cola Slope Soaker. Forty-seven brave skiers and snowboarders launched themselves off a jump in hopes of clearing the impossibly long pond of chilly water.

Autumn Jones won overall based on style, costume and crowd popularity.

The music of the Good Ol’ Goats livened up the sunny plaza as skiers and boarders bid a fond farewell to next winter.
