Sled Shed is proudly putting on our 11th Rail Jam!
If you've been here before then you know this is the best Rail Jam for miles and miles!
As always, it will be held in Smith Park in the SouthEast corner by the Hospital. We will have a very similar set up as last year for the features but hope to have an improved drop in as well as better crowd control for lining up for the features.
Due to the numbers of participants last year we are going to have to limit how many people can compete. To make sure you are able to compete we are inviting people to come into the store, or call ahead (208.356.7116) to pre-register. If you pre-register then there will only be a $15 charge (we can take a card # over the phone). We will also hold registration the morning of the event as we are setting up (cash only). If you register that morning then registration will be $20 so be sure to register early!
We hope to have enough participants to warrant two or three classes of snowboarders divided by either age and skill, as well as a girls class, and a skiers class. This is flexible depending on how many participants we have.
We are still deliberating the specific details but expect a judge on each feature. These judges will be looking for style first and foremost, technicality of the trick, and execution, meaning you gotta land bolts son! Make sure you get a score on each feature during the jam sessions. Your scores from each feature will be averaged together to help the judges in their evaluations. There will be elimination rounds followed by a Final for each division.
A "Tough as Nails" winner will be announced
Riders will collaborate on a "Best Trick" winner
Expect prizes and swag!
10:00am- Registration opens
11:30am- Practice begins

Big thanks to everyone that came out and had a good time!
The kids like to build jumps and hit them. Unfortunately they don't always land. But it's fun anyway!
We are now a Cheetah Factory Racing Dealer! Sales will be by special order only for now. If you've been accessing the backcountry by using a snowmobile and you are annoyed having to carry your board or your skis on your backpack then this is the best solution possible! Used by professional snowboarders across the industry including names like Travis Rice!
This is just a little teaser of some snowmobiling and one line down some stuff we found in the Teton Range

Welcome to the Hood highlights the 2 month trip to Switzerland, Austria and France shared by climbers and friends Daniel Woods, Paul Robinson, Guntram Joerg, and Anthony Gullsten. Climbing in Ticino, Murgtal, Silvretta, and Fontainebleau, the crew accomplished some of their biggest climbing achievements to date. Witness Guntram and Anthony send their first 8B+/8C, Paul make the first ascent of an 8B+, and Daniel make the first 8B+/8C flash in the world. At around 40 minutes in length, Welcome to the Hood gives you an inside look at the psyche and motivation that goes hand in hand with living and climbing with elite athletes.
