Rails to Riches returns to Killington

Posted By: The Ski Channel on November 8, 2010 2:14 pm

One of the most anticipated rail jams every year returns to Killington this December 11th with a prize purse of $15,000.  Competitors from around the country will be attending, and you can too.  This year Killington is adding a refreshing twist in the form of rider-judged finals.  The athletes will be picking the winners this year, oh yeah.  How do you get in on this amazing event?  Simply get over to Killington’s website this Wednesday, November 10th at 8:00pm EST and pre-register.  Be sure to hurry because spots in this comp are notorious for disappearing quickly.  Registration is only $65 for men and $35 for women.  With cash prizes of $3,000 and $1,000 for first place, it would be a bad financial decision not to.  Killington will also be awarding ten $100 prizes to various skiers throughout the competition who pull some gnarly tricks.

With the best riders around and a massive cash purse, there is simply no reason you wouldn’t want to attend.  Shouldn’t you be killing it at Killington?
