Appalachian Ski Mountain Hosts the Last “Shred for the Cup” Rail Jam Saturday!

When: Saturday, March 17th
Where: Registration 8:30-10:00am in the Snowcloud Room (3rd Level of Lodge)
Competition starts at 10:30am on Appaljack Terrain Park

Be sure to mark your calendars for this coming Saturday, March 17th, for the final event of App Terrain Park’s "Shred for the Cup" Series, presented by Board Paradise. This Rail Jam event will also determine the entire series winners, as there are a lot of close calls regarding everyones overall series point standings. The setup for the event is going to be handrail-style oriented features, with a huge theme of progression. Our idea is to let riders get their tricks down on the smaller rails, and letting them comfortably progress those tricks to more and more difficult features. As of now we plan on setting up a 16 ft. handrail, a 23 ft. handrail, a 32 ft. Box Combo set up handrail style, and finally the 32 ft. single barrell handrail. There will definitely be something setup for all abilities, so make plans to be out on Saturday, and be ready to learn some new tricks!

A Big thanks goes out to all of our sponsors who made this event series possible! Board Paradise, Salomon, Burton, Atomic, and Red Bull.
