Volcom Peanut Butter & Rail Jam – Mammoth
11 Dec, 2010
The first of thirteen stops on the Peanut Butter and Rail Jam went down in Mammoth today under bluebird skies and plenty of crowds watching the action from the sundeck. Riders competed in different heats to prove their skills worthy enough of the Championships that will return to Mammoth in May. There were three lines of features for the riders to hit and each rider had to hit all three to be considered.
I got a late start to the morning but was able to watch the women’s and men’s open heats compete, grab some shots and head onto the slopes myself for a great day to be outside snowboarding.
The girls were great to watch and a solid gathering of riders out on the slopes. I knew two of the girls competing, Mel and Jade so got to watch them in action.
One girl brought out the one-footed trick on the flat to down box and landed it after her second try
Mel with a crooked nosepress
After the girls went, it was time for the men’s open heat. With the three lines of features, it was quick watching the guys hit each of them simultaneously.
