Boarders will be looking for style at Sno-Jam

  • 0

The annual Sno-Jam is coming up at Snowbowl this weekend.

The two-day competition features a slopestyle and big-air competition on Saturday, followed by a banked slalom run on Sunday.

Anyone can take part, provided they have the entry fee, but be advised - the Sno-Jam often draws the best riders from around Montana.

"It's the snowboard event of the year for us here in Missoula," said Kevin "KB" Brown of Edge of the World, which sponsors the event. "All the best riders will be there, and it's just a ton of fun for everybody."

Although Snowbowl doesn't have a terrain park, one has essentially been created for Sno-Jam, Brown said.

"We've got big jumps and tabletops and rails set up all along High Roller," he said. "We've been working for the past couple of weeks to get that spot ready."

High Roller, one of the blue runs atop the mountain, will be the site for both the big-air and the slopestyle, a competition where style on both jumps and rails is everything. Brown said a handful of tabletop jumps have been built along the run, and they should provide for some soaring jumps on Saturday.

The banked slalom will take place in the Chicken Chute, a narrow funnel at the bottom of the mountain's famed bowls.

Each competition will feature prizes, which will be handed out about 4 p.m. each day, Brown said.

Registration will take place each morning from 10-11:30 a.m. in the bar, with competition getting under way about noon.

You can compete in one event for $15 and all events for $20.

"It's gonna be a great weekend up there, and it's a lot of fun, even if you're just watching," Brown said.
