SkiSoutheast is Excited to be a Part of the Fun this Year!

…okay a small part, but we are planning to be in attendance and do some filming of the event and festivities. We feel that this is a very worthwhile event to promote and support and we hope that our readers will come and join in on the good times. This is the 5th Annual Daniel Boone Rail Jam and it is put on by Appalachian Mountain Brewery and in speaking with Danny Wilcox he really wanted us to reach out to shedders from all over the Southeast and mid-Atlantic region – and let you guys know that this year’s event will be bigger and better than ever…with over $12,000 in prize money for participants!

So for those of you who love to shred and show off your skills to a large audience in attendance – Appalachian Mountain Brewery’s Daniel Boone Rail Jam is taking place on Saturday, March 16th.

Wanna Just Watch!?!?!

I have already spoken with many people about this year’s Rail Jam, and what I’ve heard many times is this is your chance to attend an ‘X Games’ type event in person…and you won’t believe some of the tricks that our local and regional talent can pull off.

There will be food and beverages available for purchase. All are welcome to participate or spectate at the event.

Here’s a bit of video to show some of the excitement. Thanks to Jordan Nelson of Nelson Aerial Productions and also to High Country Press for portions of the video.

All This Fun AND For A Great Cause!

The proceeds go to the Revamp the Amp project. The “Amp” is the Daniel Boone Amphitheater and home to Horn in the West, the nation’s oldest Revolutionary War drama, which brings to life the famous frontiersman Daniel Boone and the hardy mountain settlers of the Blue Ridge Mountains in their struggle to preserve their freedom during the turbulent years before and during the War for Independence. This year will mark the 68th year for the outdoor drama!

The warm up and spectator opener will take place at 5 p.m., and the competition itself will take place at 6 p.m. Finals will start at 7 p.m., closing with the award ceremony at 9 p.m. The Daniel Boone Rail Jam will be held at The Daniel Boone Amphitheater, which is located at 591 Horn in the W Drive.

Don’t Fret the Weather…

It won’t matter if it frigid cold or sunny with highs in the 60s, the promoters are trucking in tons of shaved ice to the venue and the ramps this year will be bigger and better than ever.

There will be plenty of raffles and prizes for the spectators as well as event participants. Shauna Godwin, of AMB’s We Can So You Can Foundation said, “We have a wide variety of prizes which, in the past, has included ski and snowboard gear, gift certificates, and other items from local sponsors. We also have custom trophies and cash prizes.

There will be several food trucks, drinks, beer and plenty of good times waiting for YOU to attend!

The Appalachian Mountain Brewery asks participants and spectators to not bring their own alcohol. Alcohol may be consumed, but must be purchased at the event along with the presentation of a photo-ID.
