Seventh Annual Shred for the Cup Rail Jam to be held This Saturday, Jan. 5, at Appalachian Ski Mountain

5525789943_62bf7f8994_oJan. 3, 2013. App Terrain Park will kick off the seventh annual Shred for the Cup Series on Saturday, Jan. 5, with the Nordica/Never Summer Rail Jam. The Shred for the Cup series has become the benchmark park competition series in the region, with three events held throughout the winter that test skiers and snowboarders skills in several park disciplines (Rail Jam, Big Air and Slopestyle).

As always, the series has categories for all skill levels (beginner, intermediate, advanded) of both skiers and snowboarders, as well as a dedicated women’s category in both ski and board.

With the recent cold temperatures, natural snow, and ample snowmaking in all terrain parks, riders can count on a versatile, fun rail/box setup in either the Appal Jam or Appaljack Terrain Park for the event. Remember that points are given out for placement at each SFTC event, and are tallied throughout the season to determine the overall series winners that receive the coveted cups.
