Skiers and riders shine at Okemo’s Light the Night Rail Jam March 3
LUDLOW, Vt. – Okemo Mountain Resort will light up one of its trails and a specially constructed rail garden on Bull Run, Saturday, March 3, for its annual Light the Night Rail Jam. A prize purse of $5,000 in cash, plus prizes, will go to the best skiers and riders in this jam-format competition. The Bull Run trail, located adjacent to Okemo’s Clock Tower base area, makes an optimal venue for participants and spectators alike.
Okemo’s Light the Night Rail Jam competitors can participate in one of two divisions. The Amateur class will compete for prizes, while the Pro class will compete for the chance to win a portion of the $5,000 purse. Included in this year's event is a best-trick contest presented by Clif Bar.
The entry fee is $20. Registration is scheduled from 3 to 5 p.m. in the mezzanine of the Clock Tower base lodge. Competitors may also pre-register online at okemo.com. The Amateur competition starts at 5:30 p.m., and the Pro class starts at 6:30 p.m. Helmets are required for all competitors. Participants under 18 require a waiver signed by a parent or guardian.
"Light the Night has grown to be a big hit with our guests over the years," said Okemo Parks and Pipe Manager Mark Fiori. "Each year the setup is different from years prior - offering something for the kidos and the more advanced skiers and riders. Our goal is to build something visually appealing and very creative with multiple options."
