Take part in the annual Dummy Downhill event!
Be devious, be crafty, be cute, be funny. Create the most ingenious downhill dummy your creative genius can fathom. Your dummy will ski down a hill, take a jump and then….well, we’ll see what happens!
Prizes for best jump. Public will vote on the best dummy.
We challenge you to try out the Slush Cup!
Will your jump clear the slushy pit, or will you test the temperature of its slushy waters? Prizes for best jumps. A wet-suited rescuer will be waiting in the wings in case the slush wins!
If you don’t want to risk a freezee baptism, we won’t blame you. Join the fun and watch the spectacle with rest of the crowd! Costumes welcome!
