Downhill Dummy April 15



We always close out the season with a big bang! Hope you’ll come out for the annual Downhill Dummy and Rail Jam event on Sunday, April 15.

Lift tickets will be discounted at half-day rates for the entire day. In addition to skiing and riding, we will offer snow tubing on this special day, plus a free bounce house.

The rail jam kicks-off at 12 p.m. We’ll have live music from Forget the Roses on the deck all afternoon, plus food and drink specials.

The highlight of the afternoon is the Downhill Dummy. Teams build unique dummies to send down the hill and launch off a jump. This year’s theme is movie characters, and prizes will be awarded for best design, best air and best crash. Watch them fly down the hill starting at 4:30 p.m. You’ll want to get there early to get a good spot to watch!
