Re-cap: Edelweiss Valley Kinky Rail Jam
Author: Eve Northmore
The Women’s Snowboard Federation crew was back in Quebec on March 27th to complete a double-header competition weekend. Billabong Flaunt It on Saturday and the Rugged Riders Kinky Rail Jam on Sunday.
The Kinky Rail Jam went off at Edelweiss Valley with bluebird skies and to no surprise, yet another sweet E.V. setup. The morning held a beginner clinic as well as a game of K.I.N.K.Y for the intermediate riders to win a custom Rugged Riders snowboard. Promising up-and-comer Serena Dalton took home the board after a sudden-death battle royale with Jackie Sakaguchi, finally stomping a 180 on – 180 off on the up box.
The afternoon gave way to the down and dirty competition as the girls jammed for cash and prizes from sponsors. The drive from Ohio was worth it for Flow snowboards rider Jen Cusick who took home $200 cash for 1st place advanced. Renee Flipot and Marie-Pier Grignon took intermediate and beginner categories respectively.
