Hey boarders, have you been practicing in the terrain park all winter and feel you're ready to start competing? This Saturday, Winter Park will host the TransWorld Trans Am Rail Jam. Previous competitions have been held at Wateville Valley, N.H., Big Boulder in Pennsylvania, and Buck Hill in Minnesota. After the competition at Winter Park, the event moves on to Northstar-at-Tahoe, with the finals held at Bear Peak in California.
The TransWorld Trans Am Rail Jam winners at Winter Park will get flight vouchers to compete in the Bear Mountain finals, which will be broadcast live on TransworldSnowboarding.com. The event is open to the first 100 registrants. Fee for registration is $10, and includes a subscription to Transworld Snowboarding. You can register for the event online.
The event starts at 11 a.m., with check-in from 8 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Both a men's division and women's division are held. Winter Park has upgraded some features of the terrain park for the competition. Winners will get prizes from the event sponsors, who include Ride Snowboards, Dakine, Oakley, Zumiez, and Giro.
