Volcom Peanut Butter and Rail Jam

Add to iCalendar/Outlook
The Peanut Butter and Rail Jam is Volcom’s amateur snowboard contest series. The goal of the series is to give something back to the kids. Deviating from the established way snowboard contests are run, we put our heads together and came up with a fresh format. Instead of having three rails in a row, we put them side by side to create a rail zone. This boosts the energy level and fun nature of the contest because everyone is together, riding, hiking, and watching in a big group. There are four divisions; 15 & under, 16 & over, Girls and Open (pro-am). The contest runs in a jam format so there are no scheduled runs. You can hit each of the rails as many times as you want during your 20 minute heat. The judges only care about tricks you pull, so you don’t need to worry about falling. The event is absolutely free, on a first come first serve basis, and boasts tons of free prizes and PB&J sandwiches! Also, everyone who enters walks away with a t-shirt and stickers!! See you on the hill!

Heats of 20 – 30 riders compete for 20 minutes in jam format; the three features are judged/ scored separately. One judge is posted in each of the three areas giving competitors a score every time they hit their specific feature, the idea is to get the best score possible on each of the three features. Scores are added together at the end of each heat to determine who moves on to the finals.
