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. Dummies can be made from a variety of materials and creativity is stressed! Dummies are judged based on their construction, creativity, the distance they fly off the jump and the carnage factor when they land! Prizes are awarded for best construction, best theme/name, best disintegration, best flight, and more!!! The event is a fundraiser for the Canadian Cancer Society and there will be a bonus prize for the entry that raises the most money!!
