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!
See 2016'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 75 people so sign up early!
For Ages 12-15, a parent or guardian must complete waiver.
