There was no such thing as sidecut or Gortex at Hot Dog Days at Fernie Alpine Resort. Skinny skis and flashy neon stretch pants flew by as skiers and boarders launched wicked spread eagles and daffies. A unique baseball game was also played out on the slopes by dudes dressed like the ladies. The tradition began after “Hot Dog Days”, a movie about a ski bum from Idaho who traveled to California for a ski competition, hit the big screen in 1984.
