Leftover Yam Jam fashion: skiers and snowboarders face off

At the leftover Yam Jam on Friday, skiers and snowboarders alike gathered to face it off freestyle in a casual post-Thanksgiving competition. They were facing off against each other -- the skier and snowboarder events were separate -- but the real rivalry was, of course, between those who favor riding down a mountain on one surface and those who prefer two. And nowhere was that rivalry more apparent than in what they were wearing. We sent intrepid photographer Soren McCarty into the melee to get photos and talk to skiers and snowboarders about their mad stylez. He brought back this report.
