Come one, come all to the 2020 Dummy Downhill at Mt. Ashland!

Participants build a dummy on skis (or atop a snowboard) that gets launched off a big jump just downhill from our Lodge to the delight of all spectators. This wacky event is fun for the whole family–skiers and non-skiers alike. Start building your dummies now because there is going to be a stiff competition in 2019.

Contest Rules:

  1. The Dummy cannot weigh more than 125 lbs.
  2. The Dummy must be mounted on one snowboard or two skis
  3. The Dummy can not have any glass, ceramic, or sharp metal objects
  4. No explosives or fire involved in the dummy’s design or function
  5. The Dummy must be submitted at Mt. Ashland by 10:00am on March 15, 2020


A panel of judges will score Dummies on originality at 11:00am. This will comprise 50% of the total score. A panel of judges will also score the Dummies on a downhill run at 1:00pm. The downhill run comprises the other 50% of the total score.  During the downhill, judges will score for a straight approach to the jump, the height the Dummy achieves, and the landing. All criteria is totally subjective.
