Everyone's favourite day of the year is here! Are you ready? We are. DJ Cona spinning your favourite retro beats! All the draft beer you can funnel into yourself! Shotskis! Shotskis! Shotskis! Big open patio dance party til sundown! Fun prizes! Shuttles ferrying the weary back to town! It's gonna get neon.

One of my favourite weeks of the ski season has come and gone, and it was definitely one for the books.

The brain child of Kieran Summers, (many that know him refer to him as the godfather of Hot Dog Day), this popular event began roughly 13-14 years ago when a he decided to get a crew together to mimic those donning the screens in classic ski movies such as Hot Dog the Movie and Aspen Extreme. Not surprisingly, the trend gained momentum and years later it continues to be a highlight of the winter season.

Hot Dog Day had some surprises in store for those in attendance. Vitality Body & Mind created a dance routine and roughly 70 people put in the time to learn the steps to perform together for Fernie's first flash mob! Colourful and fun, it truly made this Hot Dog Day one for the books at Fernie Alpine Resort.
