“People love it, it’s great for the kids, you don’t even have to be a skier or a snowboarder, you can just come to watch us demolish these dummies off of this big jump.”-Mt. Ashland GM Hiram Towle
Mt. Ashland Ski Resort in Oregon held its annual Dummy Downhill event Sunday, featuring 20 handmade dummies which were sent downhill and hit huge jump, grand prize winner walking away with a free season pass. UPI reports the rules required each dummy to weigh under 125 pounds and be mounted on either two skis or a snowboard. Participants were judged by creativity, their run, their craft, and their air time. Congratulations to Margaret Shaughnessy and her dummy “The Flying Ace” who was declared winners this year. Enjoy the free year of skiing.
