The first rail jam, the Valentine’s Rail Massacre, is set to take off on Sat., Feb. 12 at the Big Eddy Pub. The first local rail jam series aside from the annual Revy Rail Jam, these monthly, seasonal events will be showcasing great local skiing and snowboarding talent, with a focus on camaraderie and earning potential.

Event Organizer Joey Norsworthy is enthusiastic about producing this new rail jam series.

“I’m stoked to be running this contest series with the Big Eddy Pub and Society Skate and Snow,” he says. “I hope to see a great girls turnout for the event!”

Backyard park rats can use all the tricks they’ve been mastering this season to earn their way to the finals, which will be conducted in a cash for tricks format. The bigger and better the trick the rider does, the more they earn.

Skiers and snowboarders will have a host of fun features to test their skills on, including a 24 ft. down box and an urban-style street rail.

The Valentine’s Rail Massacre is an official event, judged by local talented and sponsored by local businesses Society Skate and Snow, Big Eddy Pub, Astral Mountain Productions, Rugged Riders and The Revelstoke Snowboard Association as well as Rome Snowboards and Ourhabit Lifestyle Marketing.
