Under Armour 3rd Rail Jam 2011 (After-Party at Wobbly Barn)

This just popped in. Better late than never, eh? While certainly not ideal, please pardon the fact that it’s more of less just a (slightly edited) reprint of the press release received earlier.
Under Armour 3rd Rail Jam 2011 Killington Resort VtHip-hop, urban edge and art hit the slopes. Mashup the nation’s best amateur skiers and riders with an unleashed hip-hop influence and you’ve got the renowned Under Armour 3rd Rail Jam. Making the rounds again for 2011, the Under Armour 3rd Rail Jam will offer three additional resort stops for a total of eight across the nation.

This tour will showcase some of the best in snowsports with a series of winner-takes-all rail jams, slopeside graffiti art, MC battles, hip-hop music and off-the-hook after-parties.

The grassroots snow competition series is as follows:

—January 1, Killington Resort, Vt* :: Registration starts at 10am, Jam starts at 12:30pm. After-party at Wobby Barn.

—January 8, Mountain Creek, NJ

* = New venues to the tour this year. Last year there were five stops (including Brighton, Utah) now there are three additional stops, for a total of eight stops, which include four new venues.

The Under Armour 3rd Rail Jam draws aspiring amateur riders to resorts nationwide. Up to 150 riders per stop will compete in a winner takes all competition conducted in true jam format. Judges are present at all features to provide the best scoring coverage possible. Each division will be competing for cold, hard cash and additional prizes. The competition is open to four divisions: 15 and under, all girls, best of breed and skiers.

Hip-hop culture reigns supreme where notorious graffiti crews offer up live painting demos and a freestyle MC competition pits eight local MCs against one another in “The Battle Below Zero”

The event’s energy continues as each rail jam is followed by pulsating after-parties that feature the hottest DJs, break dance crews and live hip-hop performances. Events sponsors include some of the biggest names in fashion, action sports and technology such as Under Armour, Kangol, Bern, Beats by Dr. Dre, 33Third, Grenade and Launch Snowboards. At each stop of the tour, sponsors will have a presence to showcase their latest product lines and conduct giveaways for attendees.

3rd Rail has partnered again with Slacker to create a customized online radio station for the tour. The 3rd Rail Jam station is filled with original hip-hop, rock, funk, and soul taken completely from DJ Image’s impressive 20,000-plus record collection. Listen at http://www.slacker.com/3rdrailjams
