MOONLIGHT BASIN – Moonlight Basin Resort is hosting the 2013 Volcom
Stone’s Peanut Butter and Rail Jam free amateur snowboard contest this Saturday, Jan. 19. Moonlight is the No. 4 stop in Volcom’s contest series.
Top riders from around the region will attend the contest, which breaks from traditional rail jam formats in that it offers three rails dug in side‐by‐side to create a single, large rail
“This boosts the energy level and fun nature of the contest because everyone is together,
riding, hiking and watching in a big group,” according to Moonlight Basin events coordinator Ersin Ozer.
The event is free, on a first-come, first-serve basis, and boasts tons of free prizes and of course, PB&J sandwiches. Volcom will invite the top five competitors in all divisions to compete in
the Peanut Butter and Rail Jam Championships at Mammoth Mountain, Calif.
