Dummy Downhill at Diamond Peak
Incline’s spring fling kicks off Saturday with the Dummy Downhill at Diamond Peak, in its 10th installment this year.
Get your spot early to view all of the fun.
There is no charge to enter and just about everything is in the mix, from couches filled with dummies to lawn mowers pushed by dummies. As the dummies head down the mountain to catch some big air on the jump, the crowd cheers, and the more body parts that fly, the more the crowd erupts. Heads really do roll in this event.
