Killington’s ‘Rails to Riches’ rail jam event postponed to December 12th

Killington, like so many other resorts in the East, was saddened to announce that their annual ‘Rails to Riches’ rail jam will be postponed to December 12th. The event had been scheduled for this Saturday, December 5th, but the unseasonable warm weather has just not allowed them to ensure proper snow conditions for an event of this magnitude.

The rail jam, which features a large $15,000 prize purse, had attracted competitors from as far away as Utah. Sadly, this means some of those plane tickets that had been booked for the original date, might turn out to be useless for those entrants. However, Killington has announced they are working hard with the airlines to hopefully resolve these cases.

Here is the schedule and prize purse breakdown for the event happening Dec. 12th on the ‘Lower Highline’ at the K-1 base.
