The Boulder Snowboarding Group -- a local Meetup group, more than 1,000 strong, that can barely contain itself -- is breaking out the SWAT team gear (snowboard weapons and tactics?) this weekend for its Rail Riot event at Loveland.

The Saturday contest, open to the first 100 rioters with a lift ticket to ride and $15 for registration, will pit the jibbers against each other in the Love Park terrain park, with rails, boxes, and a quarter-pipe jib hit.

DJ Motion from Search and Rescue Productions will set the soundtrack, and you might wish you had actual riot gear with you when they start throwing out swag from event sponsors Smith Optics and So-Gnar. The prize you'll really have to fight for? The Rail Riot winner will ride off on a new deck from Never Summer.

Registration starts at 8:30am at the Loveland base area. For more information (and a release form for underage rioters) visit RailRiot.com

There's also a BSG party in Boulder tonight (Thursday, Jan. 14) at 8 p.m. at the Lazy Dog Sports Bar & Grill, featuring prizes and giveaways from Dakine, for anyone who wants a taste of what the group is all about.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
