Last Saturday afternoon, skiers and riders at Big Sky Resort watched as a nun riding on the back of a bright pink pig on skis went soaring over a ski jump and through the air to a stupendous crash landing.

 

It was Pork Chops and Prayers, the winner of Big Sky Resort’s 7th annual Dummy Jump.  A dummy built by Big Sky’s lift maintenance crew, it was joined by 24 other themed dummies that launched off of a jump on the Ambush Headwall to the cheers of hundreds.
