Under Armor’s 3rd Rail Jam is coming to Mount Hood, Oregon!  Check-in will begin at 10am for what is shaping up to be an exciting clash of the titans.  This year marks the 5th year of this national, touring, grassroots snow sport competition coupled with live hip-hop music, art, fashion, technology, and culture.  The action all begins this Saturday, February 25th.

In true jam format, the judges watch each feature to provide the scoring coverage in this slope styled rail contest.  Cash and prizes are doled out to the top placers with two round elimination.  Each event can have up to 150 riders separated into 4 divisions: all girls, 15 and under, best of breed, and skiers.

Graffiti artists bring another their own style to the event as they will create and present throughout the competition.  DJs will be on site to spin hip hop and add ambience to the party side of things as regional music talent will be featured alongside them.  20 percent of each entry fee will be donated to AMPED 4-A-Cure, a non-profit dedicated to eradicating the world of cancer.  The goal of the event is to raise awareness of the group that supports research through music.
