“Dummy Demolition Derby is a sport of sorts, where teams of one to three people construct snow-riding dummies attached to a pair of skis or a snowboard and launch the handmade contraptions off a giant on-snow jump and over a massive flame thrower. The winning team will take home $3,000 with $1,500 and $500 going to the second and third place teams, respectively.” (Vail Press Release)
