A downhill ski race for all ages, of all abilities, the Schuss Boomer is one of but a handful of surviving town downhill races left in Canada.

This one-day event combines a fun race and something more serious for those who feel the need for speed.

This year the fun race consisted of teams of three, dressed in costume, guessing their combined time down the hill.

Many laughs and outrageous and crazy costumes are well known for this event, and this year skiers did not disappoint.
