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!

See last year's event:

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.

Open to anyone 12 years of age and older, and limited to the first 75 people that register so sign up early!

Day of registration will only be available if spots are available.
