Okemo Mountain Resort will light up the night skies with a little help from the Ludlow Fire Department on Saturday, Feb. 26. Okemo’s Light the Night Rail Jam invites skiers and snowboarders to throw down some tricks while Ludlow fire trucks throw some light on Okemo’s Bull Run trail. The Killarney will ante up $250 in prize money and host a party after the event.

The competition will be a jam format. Half of the proceeds from the $20 entry fee will go to support the Ludlow Fire Dept. for their help in supplying the illumination. The other half of the entry fee proceeds and the prize purse from The Killarney will go to the event winners. There will be no lift service for this event.

Registration for the Light the Night Rail Jam will take place in Okemo’s Clock Tower Base Lodge starting at 4 p.m. The competition is slated to begin at 6 p.m. Spectators are welcome and The Sitting Bull will be open for refreshments. DJ Dan from Okemo’s Parks Crew will be spinning the wheels of steel.
