Every spring when the snow’s melting away, the Dummy Downhill at Diamond Peak marks the end of the ski/snowboard season. Participating teams build a “dummy” (you interpret what that means) of less than 75 pounds, mounted on skis or a snowboard. The dummies are transported up the mountain and set loose to launch off a giant jump in full view of the base lodge. Meanwhile, on the deck of the base lodge, spectators enjoy barbecue, beverages and live music while they watch the shenanigans. At a ceremony following the event, awards are given for creativity, longest jump, worst jump, etc. It’s a fun day for the whole family.
