EVENT INFO

Show off your skills in a choreographed ski/blade dance set to music. The ski ballet demonstration area will be set up on the lower part of the Ballet run leading into the Bear’s Den

There are three categories:

  • Ski
  • Snowblade
  • Pairs
This is an all-ages event, so participants’ song choices MUST be family-friendly and clean, both in the song lyrics and content (explicit songs with words beeped out or silenced will not work). Routines should be 90 seconds long as per Olympic demonstration rules – but, honestly, this isn’t the Olympics. If you are still grooving after 90 seconds, we aren’t going to cut you off. Routines will be judged based on your theme/outfit choice, style, artistic display, and technical execution.
 

Put on your best retro outfits and dancing shoes, and join SNCKS and DJ CONA in the Griz Bar for a totally rad retro dance party.  Guranteed these DJ’s will get the dance floor moving! There is no cover to get in, but you must be 19 years old! The bar has limited capacity, so get there early to secure your spot!  Retro outfits encouraged.

How low can you go??   Test your carving skills and see how low you can carve under our snowboard limbo setup.  The contest will take place on Lower Ballet.   Judged by Fernie’s very own Carving King & Queen – Lars & Sara we will be seeing who will be crowned the Carving Prince & Princess of 2024.

Join us on Saturday and Sunday at the Bear’s Den for some on-hill retro fun. We will have live DJs spinning retro tunes and fun contests like Ski Limbo and Snowboard Ollie. Plus, enjoy a Banded Peak Brewing beverage and other tasty food and drinks. Grab your favourite friends, get your retro gear on, and join us for fun!

Show off your best retro outfits on the mountain.

We want to see you dressed in your retro best. Share it with us for a chance to win some sweet swag.
Photo contest categories include:

  • Best group shot
  • Best action shot (think old-school moves)
  • Best retro pose/Best Fashion Moment

Share your photo on Instagram and tag @FernieAlpineResort for your chance to win! (If you don’t have a public account, please DM us a screenshot of the photo, as we won’t be able to see your tag)
