Now Open for Skiing & Riding.

With the arrival of April, we were busy enjoying spring conditions and capping off our season with our annual End of Season Rail Jam Presented by Arizona Iced Tea on Saturday, April 7th.  Skiers and snowboarders of all ages we're invited to The Arena for a Rail Jam to celebrate the great season and compete for prizes by the event's sponsors Arizona Iced Tea, Burton Snowboards and Van's. 

Nearly 100 people came out for the event with over 30, 15 & under competitors looking to throw down their best tricks and take home some sweet prizes.

So many prizes, and so much fun. Everyone was having a blast trying new tricks and enjoying the set-up which was perfect for this Rail Jam. Thanks to Stephen Ernst, there was variety in difficulty and the ability to get creative on some new features with tons of flow in the set-up. 

10-year old LJ Henriquez took home the top spot for the Under 15 category.
