The second of four King of the Rail rail jams took place on Saturday night, Jan. 7 at the base of Whistler Mountain. With snow falling, 67 skiers and riders spent two hours sessioning the rail, boxes and double rail setup.
The athletes themselves judged the event with a head judge to collect votes and keep things honest, with a share of the entry fees going to the top skier or rider in each category based on the number of participants.
Nicolas Charrois got the most votes in the Ski Male 17 and Over group, earning $100.
Amanda Webster was first in Ski Female 17 and Over, earning $15.
Braden Wheeler was tops in Ski Male 1 and Under, finishing with $15.
Logan Farrow won the Snowboard Male 17 and Over group, earning $100.
Maria Thomsen was first in the Snowboard Female 17 and Over category to earn $20.
Luke Dutton won the Snowboard 16 and Under category, winning $15.
Ryan Manning and Cynthia Brassard were voted the overall King and Queen of the Rail at the end of the evening.
All of the participants were eligible to win draw prizes from sponsors. Sam Schrader won the Nintendo Wii, Rowan Hobson won the Atomic skis and Adrian Tongko won the Burton snowboard.
The next rail jam is on Feb. 11.
