Snowboarders, this one is for you!

Get back to your snowboarding roots with the Dirty Dancer Banked Slalom, a throwback to the ’80s where snowboarders were the outlaws of the wild west, banned from most ski resorts and forced to fight for the right to shred! Well, times have changed and we want you to celebrate by entering this awesome event for all ages.

Registration is now live online. Race fee covers your two timed runs down the Dirty Dancer Banked Slalom Course, and the chance to bag some top prizes from Fernie's amazing local board shops. You'll also get a burger and beverage to celebrate your run.

The course will run through the Dancer Gully in Lizard Bowl and is open to all ages (we recommend an intermediate riding level). Head up to the top of the Bear Quad Chair and traverse across Lizard Traverse to find the start.

Prepare yourself once again this season for the return of Fernie Alpine Resorts’ Kokanee Snow Dreams Festival – Voted The Best Deck Party in Canada by Ski Canada Magazine. Traditionally, the Griz rewards our celebration of winter with fresh snow, serving up an all you can eat Powder Buffet. After you’ve tackled the slopes join us for an Ice Cold Kokanee in the Griz Bar while listening to tunes courtesy of your favorite Snow Dreams DJ – DJ Rocswell.  The party continues all night in the legendary Griz Bar, where the most unspeakable of Après activities have been witnessed on more than one occasion.
