One of favorite events went down today, the end of season Molly Rail Jam. This benefit event is like a reunion. It serves as the end of season event for the Northern VT USASA series as the athletes prepare for Nationals in Copper. Pictured here is SNSC coach Kiah showing the style on a back lip slide.
After finishing my shift I went down to see it in use. The riders were using the berms to learn turning movements and rollers to learn up and down movement.

Here’s looking down at the Zone early this morning. We were able to patch the landings up a bit this morning thanks to the new snow. If you haven’t hit the Zone up yet, do so. It’s a great way to end a run on Sterling.
We are making snow in Birch Run so that we can add a second table top and some new jibs for the USASA Slopestyle event next weekend. This picture is hard to see it, but there’s a good number of guns blasting away in there right now.
We opened the Zone park the other day. We took on a new concept with it. This year we decided to go with a skate park like feel. On the edges of the snow piles we have a few rails and jibs buried in so that they can be hit from the side or straight on. It’s definitely a fun creative set up.

The Park staff have been busy in the Zone. For the upcoming week we will have a medium jib park set up. It consist of four separate islands with two features each. So when the T-Bar is running you will have another option from Birch Run. We have not ruled out our jump line in the Zone yet, but until we get more product the crew opted to use what we had and get another park up and running. So keep your fingers crossed for more snow!
