In honor of our upcoming annual Rail Jam on October 25th, here are 5 fun facts about the action sport called Rail Jam:
1. Rail Jam has its own official Wikipedia entry.
“A rail jam is a jib contest. Riders perform tricks on rails, boxes, pipes, wall rides, and several other creative features. Rail jams are done in a small area, usually with two or three choices of features for the rider to hit on a run. They are sometimes done in an urban setting, due to the relatively small amount of snow required. Scoring is done in the “jam” format, where every rider can take as many runs as time allows, usually around an hour; prizes are typically awarded for best overall and best trick in the male and female category.” [Source]
2. Our Rail Jam will feature 50 tons of real snow.
Yes, folks, the white stuff. Of course, it won’t come from the sky, it will come from machines. But it will still be fluffy and cold!
3. 40 skiers and snowboarders will be participating, both professionals and not-so-professionals.
We look forward to seeing both rip up the rails!
4. Galvanic Design will be in charge of our construction and staging.
These cool people are the inventors of the Campus Rail Jam Tour: http://campusrailjamtour.com/
