The 19th annual Dummy Downhill will take place on Sunday, March 24, 2019. Participants build a dummy on skis (or a snowboard) that gets launched off a big jump on Show-Off while spectators cheer them on from the Base Lodge Deck. This wacky event is fun for the whole family — skiers and non-skiers alike.
Dummies must be at the Base Lodge by 10:00 a.m. to first be judged on creativity. Dummies cannot be live and must weigh less than 75 pounds. Team captains should be present to help load the dummies after they have been judged and unload at the top of the jump. The jumping will be followed by an award ceremony on the Base Lodge Deck as well as live music.
Preregister by emailing your dummy name, team name, and team captain’s name(s) to by March 22, 2019.
