On April 6th, 2013, the inaugural “Monster Energy Enemy Lines” will take place. 26 Pro Skiers will line up on top of the infamous “Headwall” at Fernie Mountain Resort with the same goal of beating all other competitors in an all-at-once race to the village at the bottom of the valley.
“Enemy Lines” is not the first of it’s kind, however, it’s the first time in history (so far as we know) that this type of race, made famous in the cult film “Hot Dog,” will take place as a professional sport with the first one across the finish line winning not only bragging rights but the big check as well.
The qualifier, held on Friday, April 5th will also be an event to watch as it is also a first. The timed seeding race will start at the top of Polar Peak, in terrain that is otherwise permanently closed to skiers, and finish near Giggly Gully at the bottom of the Lizard Bowl.
April 5th – Qualifiers from 11AM – 4PM
April 6th – Village beer gardens from 12pm – 7pm with Dj Pump, DJ Illo and Vinyl Ritchie.
April 6th – RACE will take place after 4PM weather permitting.
April 6th – After Party at the Grizz Bar from 8:30pm – 1am
