Eighteen dummies were sent to their doom in front of about 70 spectators during the annual Dummy Downhill event at the Pass Powder Keg Ski Resort on Sunday.
One of the dummies, Rockin’ Moose, was blissfully unaware of what fate had in store for him and his comrades.
Built by Tony Mayer and his family, Rockin’ Moose was an ironically named dummy made from a moose doll and a rocking chair strapped into a pair of skis.

Rockin’ Moose and the other dummies were towed to the top of steep slope and given a crash course in skiing in front of an appreciative crowd. When it was his turn to be shoved down the escarpment, Rockin’ Moose was displaying fine form. But his run was brutally cut short when he hit a large jump. He couldn’t stick the landing and ski equipment and bits of wood were sent skyward.
Rockin’ Moose took home second place for ‘Best Crash.’ The ‘Longest Jump’ award went to The Patroller while ‘Best Jump’ was awarded to Cyclops. The undisputed winner of the day was Angry Birds, designed and built by the Crowsnest Pass Boy Scouts, who took home the ‘Most Creative’ and ‘Best Crash’ awards.
