Bring your costume and your skis or snowboard and see if you can make it across the Slope Soaker pond!
If you see just one event all season at Fernie Alpine Resort, make it the Slope Soaker. Watch in nervous anticipation as brave participants launch themselves off a snow jump in hopes of skimming across a chilly pond, but mostly crashing into the water! Best viewing seats are on the deck at the Rusty Edge!
Participants are encouraged to dress up in creative costumes as crossing the pond is not the only goal. Extra prizes and points will be awarded for creativity/costumes, effort, crowd reaction, biggest splash etc. All registered participants are also entered in an amazing prize draw.
This fun event is open to anyone 12 years of age and older. Registration can be done at Guest Services at Fernie Alpine Resort. Call 250-423-4655 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Proceeds from the event are going to be donated to Fernie Search and Rescue.
