Griz Days has come and gone…..and what an event! Make sure to mark your calendar to be in Fernie for this event every winter as it is such a great tradition of fun for all ages. Starting out with the Friday night parade and ending with the Dummy Downhill and the crowning of the extreme Griz (mountain man of Fernie). All this in the name of Snow! As the Griz is our legendary mascot and he blesses Fernie with copious amounts of pristine powder and we celebrate that with a weekend long event which includes a parade, family carnival, sporting events/competitions, and parties galore!!
In the Hot Seat- this Dummy is on fire….The Dummy Downhill Event at Fernie Alpine Resort – it is simple event to enter….take anything out of your garage or house and attach it to skis….send it down the slope and watch it blow up when it hits the ground after it gets massive air off a jump
What can we say about this image….Is it a Mongol leader from time gone by….maybe…he is one of the contestants in the Ultimate Griz competition and this challenges the person to do Olympic style feats that are judged by a panel of Russian Federation of Sport approved judges…In short they drink (lots), have fun, laugh and do some antics like try to walk on snow or just stand on a snowboard…..repeat the fun
