Ski Ballet Competition

Show off your skills in a choreographed ski/blade dance set to music!

The ski ballet demonstration area will be set up on the lower part of the Ballet run leading into the Bear’s Den.

There are three categories:

    • Ski
    • Snowblade
    • Pairs

This is an all-ages event, so participants’ song choices MUST be family-friendly and clean, both in the song lyrics and content (explicit songs with words beeped out or silenced will not work). Routines should be 90 seconds long as per Olympic demonstration rules – but, honestly, this isn’t the Olympics. If you are still grooving after 90 seconds, we aren’t going to cut you off. Routines will be judged based on your theme/outfit choice, style, artistic display, and technical execution.


Retro Carving Contest

How low can you go?? Test your carving skills and see how low you can carve under our snowboard limbo setup. 

Contest will take place on Lower Ballet.   

Judged by Fernie’s very own Carving King & Queen – Lars & Sara we will be seeing who will be crowned the Carving Prince & Princess of 2024.


Retro Outfit Photo Contest

Show off your best retro outfits on the mountain.

We want to see you dressed in your retro best – share it with us for your chance to win some sweet swag.
