Get your dummy sleds ready for Saturday in Rossland

To finish the year off, Red Mountain will be having a pass appreciation, end of season deck party and dummy downhill for homemade sleds.

This is the last weekend of skiing at Red, which officially closes on April 9 this year, one week later than last year.

It should be a good last weekend, as the snow and precipitation is expected to continue into the weekend.

That could mean another weekend like the last one.

To finish the year off, Red will be having a pass appreciation, end of season deck party and dummy downhill for  homemade sleds.

The dummy downhill event begins at 2 p.m. Saturday and will feature sleds of all shapes coasting down the hill before flying off a jump.

Prior to the downhill event, sleds will be on display from noon. Registration starts at 9 a.m.

Enter your dummy sled for a chance to win prizes in categories like people’s choice, biggest air and fastest time.

Entry is $5, but kid’s under 16 can enter their sleds free.

Pass holders will be able to get food and beverage specials of the day as pass appreciation.

For more info, contact Lauren Ellis at 250-362-7384 or receptionist@redresort.com.
