Frozen Rail Jam Kicks Off Blue Mountain’s Season

It has been a slow start to the season in Ontario. The lack of cold temperatures and snow made Saturday, January 2nd an exciting day for local rail aficionados. The Blue Mountain Park Crew & Events Team brushed the dust off an event from the history books, and kicked off this season’s Badlands Park Jams, by bringing back the Frozen Rail Jam.

A new format was brought into play as well; Overall Best Line. Each rider would have to link their two best tricks on either the 20-foot flat beam or 30-foot Oakley handrail, into the 24-foot Rockstar shotgun or tube. Each division had 30 minutes to throw down in order to qualify for finals, and all the riders made the most of every second by getting creative with the options before them.

$1500 in cash prizing was handed out to the Open divisions, plus tons of prizing from the event sponsors. There was also $50 on the line for the ‘Coldest Trick’ in both the ski and snowboard categories. All the riders kept the party going after the event at Blue Mountain’s local gem of a bar Jozo’s. A special thanks to our friends at Coors Light for keeping everyone hydrated. The Badlands Park Jams are just getting started, and there’s plenty left to come on the calender:
