Phoenix Mtn. caps season with Spring Fling

Fling marks the end of the ski season at Phoenix Mtn.

Dummies were hurled down the slopes of Phoenix Ski Hill at the 15th Annual Dummy Downhill contest at the Spring Fling over the weekend. This year there were 15 entries

There’s something about flinging stuff down the hill that brings the sightseers out! The annual Spring Fling was held over the weekend at Phoenix Ski Hill attracting a crowd of onlookers and 15 entries in the annual Dummy Downhill race. This year’s Spring Fling theme was Luau so everything was decked out like a tropical island.

After the race the kids took a slide down the jump and gathered the candy that spilled out of the Easter-themed dummy entry “Easter Rocket and Hang On Bunnies” by the Romaine family.

Winners of this year’s race include; Best Looking: “How Low Can U Go” by Shimmer and Dave; Best Crash: “Acme Express” by Erich, Emmett and Silas; Best Jump: “Mount Wanna Hocka Loogie” by Chris Nason and People’s Choice went to “Wildfire Crew (Keven!) by Karen Andersen and Greg Mowatt. The Spring Fling marks the end of the ski season at Phoenix.
