The 17th annual Dummy Downhill will take place on Saturday, April 1, 2017. Participants build a dummy on skis (or a snowboard) that gets launched off a big jump on Show-Off while spectators cheer them on from the Base Lodge Deck. This wacky event is fun for the whole family, skiiers and non-skiiers alike.
