Urban Rail Jam & Duff Invitational Slopestyle

by Sarah21. March 2013 17:56

The past weekend at Sun Peaks was all about throwing down tricks in a jam format  - from the Rockstar Energy Terrain Park to the village streets!


On Saturday we hosted our first ever true urban rail jam which took place outside 5forty. Park enthusiasts ditched the terrain park for the afternoon and headed to the village to try their skills on urban features such as a picnic table, stair railing and a car! $5000 worth of prizes and giveaways from 5forty as well as a $1000 cash prize were up for grabs for the 70 participants who were throwing down at this unique event. The huge crowd had a blast watching and cheering the competitors on whilst listening to a live DJ who was spinning tunes to get the party atmosphere going.


Sunday saw a return to a more traditional park event for the inaugural Duff Invitational Slopestyle. Pro snowboarder Chris Dufficy was in attendance, showcasing his talent to fellow riders and to the spectators who gathered in the terrain park to catch all the action. Participants competed in a 2 hour jam session before the top scorers moved on to the finals round.


After a solid day of quality tricks, awards and prizes were handed out at Bottoms Bar + Grill for a range of different categories. The Duff Invitational was the final event in the No Bail Peace Prize series and points awarded at this event have been added to competitors scores from the Resurgence Rail Jam and The Garden to determine the overall series winner.


There's just one last rail event for the season, the Southside Rail Jam which is taking place on Sunday March 31st in the Black Terrain Park. Don't miss what will undoubtedly be another fantastic competition and an awesome conclusion to this season's terrain park events.
