This year, at each stop the top three riders in each category, plus the best girl, will qualify for the European PBRJ Championships in Glacier 3000, Gstaad-Les Diablerets, Switzerland. The event is set to take place on the 18th of April 2009, and the top riders will bag free accommodation, sick prizes and a chance to get one of the four flight tickets to the US champs in Mammoth Mountain (which offers a whopping $25,000 prize purse).
Peanut Butter and Rail Jam is Volcom’s amateur snowboard contest series. Deviating from the established way snowboard contests are run, the folks at Volcom put their heads together and came up with a fresh format. Instead of having three rails in a row, they are 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 three divisions; 15 & under, 16 & over and Girls. 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!
See you on the hill!
