Are you ready to witness some gravity-defying stunts and uproarious laughter? Fernie Mountain House is thrilled to announce our sponsorship of a dummy for the annual Griz Days festival, a highlight of Fernie’s winter festivities. Join us as we delve into the excitement of this unique competition and celebrate creativity, laughter, and community spirit.

Griz Days, a beloved winter celebration in Fernie, is known for its lively atmosphere and diverse range of activities. One of the most anticipated events is the Dummy Downhill competition, where participants craft imaginative and often hilarious “dummies” and send them hurtling down a steep slope, launching off a massive jump beside the Timber Chair. It’s a spectacle like no other, blending creativity, engineering prowess, and sheer fun into one unforgettable experience.

The rules are simple yet exhilarating: participants construct their dummies using a variety of materials, each striving to outdo the others in terms of creativity and construction quality. From whimsical characters to zany contraptions, the sky’s the limit when it comes to design. But the real thrill comes when these dummies take flight, soaring through the air before landing with varying degrees of grace – or, more often than not, carnage!

As a sponsor of one of these daring dummies, Fernie Mountain House is proud to support the spirit of innovation and community that defines Griz Days. Our dummy embodies the adventurous ethos of our mountain retreat, combining humor, ingenuity, and a touch of daring. We can’t wait to see our creation take to the slopes, representing our commitment to fostering joy and camaraderie in Fernie’s winter wonderland.

During the competition, dummies will be judged on multiple criteria, including construction quality, creativity, distance traveled off the jump, and the inevitable carnage upon landing. It’s not just about who can fly the farthest – it’s about who can elicit the biggest laughs and wows from the crowd.

But Griz Days isn’t just about the competition; it’s a celebration of Fernie’s rich culture and heritage. From live music and delicious food to family-friendly activities, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. Whether you’re a seasoned local or a first-time visitor, Griz Days offers a glimpse into the vibrant spirit of this mountain community.

So mark your calendars (March 1st to 3rd) and join us as we cheer on our sponsored dummy and revel in the infectious energy of Griz Days. Together, let’s embrace the magic of winter and create memories that will last a lifetime. See you at the Timber Chair – and may the best dummy fly!
