Even though the Horstman glacier is still rocking with skiing and snowboarding on plenty of snow, consider grabbing your deck and heading over to the Whistler Skate Park this Wednesday, July 21st for the first contest in the Vans Skate Jam summer series.

The event, which is free to enter, will test skateboarders under a “Best Trick” format on three different skate park obstacles. The skater panel of judges will be looking for the best tricks to ultimately reward skaters of each event with prizes such as $500 in cash or $1000 worth of Vans gear.

The events will continue through summer with contests falling on: July 21st, August 20th, and September 1. Each contest of the Vans Skate Jam will run from 2 – 4 p.m. so be sure to get there early for some practice!
