“The sun was shining, the snow was cold and nearly 3000 people showed up at the Art Institute of Colorado to watch Forrest Bailey and Claire Hewitt DeMeyer throw down on the streets of Denver and win the cash prize at the First Annual Backyard Bang Rail Jam Edition.

Forrest Bailey earned the 2K cash purse with consistent tricks throughout the finals. Claire Hewitt DeMeyer overcame a serious shin-shattering slam during practice to earn first place for women and the 1K prize. Both riders won a season pass to Copper Mountain.

Over 60 competitors hurled themselves into the snow-covered streets throughout the afternoon while spectators won prizes from the event sponsors, checked out art in the gallery at AI, and meandered through the sponsor village while drinking Red Bull.

Salomon riders Jed Anderson, Louif Paradis, Scotty Arnold, Chris Grenier, Bode Merrill, Harrison Gordon and Chris Carr signed autographs and cheered on riders from the comfort of their road warrior RV as part of their team tour. Event sponsors included Salomon Snowboards, The Art Institute of Colorado, Bonfire Snowboarding Company, Skull Candy, Galvanic, Copper Mountain, Westword, Scion, Snowboard Magazine, Ink Monster, Emage and Denver Diggers.
