The Raging Elk Dummy Downhill at Fernie Alpine Resort was another big smash this year.

A highlight of Fernie’s winter Griz Days festival, this competition features imaginative and hilarious “dummies” on skis launching themselves off a gigantic jump beside the Timber Chair. Dummies can be made from a variety of materials and creativity is stressed. Dummies are judged based on their construction, creativity, distance they fly off the jump and the carnage factor when they land.
