Raging Elk Dummy Downhill 2023
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 created from various materials, and creativity is stressed. They are judged on their construction, creativity, theme, the distance they fly off the jump and the carnage factor when they land.
Prizes are awarded for the best construction, theme/name, disintegration, flight, and more! Plus, there is a special prize for the dummy that raises the most donations for Angel Flight!
- No living cells are allowed in the race.
- No remote controls or human contact with the dummy is allowed after launch.
– Not higher than 6 feet, lower than 3 feet or wider than 3 feet at the base.
– Volume-weight up to a max of 100 lbs. MUST PASS WEIGH-IN.
- Only skis or snowboards are allowed to mount dummies on.
- Dummy names must be suitable for publication.
- One team member must go to the top of the course to launch the dummy.
- Owners are responsible for retrieving all dummy parts and pieces after the event.
- Gravel and dirt may NOT be used to weigh down your dummy.
- No open flame/fire, fireworks, glass or sharp objects are allowed on the dummy.
- Event organizers reserve the right to disqualify any dummies they feel are unsafe to the event and/or spectators.
