The type of Rail Jam event is become increasingly popular with both the snowboard and ski demographics. The construction of an artificial hill covered in real snow with special rail slide feature provides the opportunity to show off you skills in front of other participants and spectators who are treated to an up close look at every bone jarring, board and ski grinding maneuver.
Ski Pro’s “Pro Rider Rail Jam Event” is part of an annual pre-season snowboard and ski sale at the Valley’s three Ski Pro locations. Ski Pro has been helping to bring the fun and excitement of skiing and snowboard to the valley for over 30 years and this event is just one more example of their commitment to these sports.
On top of all the action we’ve also got some guest appearances by;
And the man himself Devun Walsh
The Boss Of The Backcountry.
Very few in snowboarding have earned the “Legend” status—and such universal respect—as the perennial Boss himself, Devun Walsh. The holder to every key in the Whistler Backcountry, his parts have been ageless, and his style on a snowboard will forever stand the test of time. Along with DC teammate Iikka Backstrom, Devun backed up his standout 2010 video part in the TransWorld SNOWboarding film, In Color, by launching the acclaimed blog and Webisode series, Polar Opposites.
A man of few words, he sums it all up with simplicity and class: “I just really, really enjoy shredding powder.” Amen, brother.
Says Dev: “Powder is endless, and I’m addicted to it. I’ve ridden for DC since they first launched boots. My background is skating, and so is DC’s—perfect fit!”
Some of the other sponsors going to be at the Ski Pro Pro Rider Rail Jam this year are:
