Raging Elk Dummy Downhill
A highlight of Fernie’s winter Griz Festival! Strictly for fun, this competition features imaginative & hilarious “dummies” on skis launching themselves off a gigantic jump beside the Timber Chair.
The dummies can be made from a variety of materials and creativity is stressed. They are judged on their construction, creativity, the distance they fly off the jump and the carnage factor when they land.
Prizes are awarded for the best construction, best theme/name, best disintegration, best flight, and more!
The event is a fundraiser for Angel Flight East Kootenay. A fully volunteer-run charity providing free air transportation to residents of the East Kootenay to medical appointments in Kelowna.
