Rail jams have long been a great way for aspiring freestylers to strut their stuff, get noticed and take home major bragging rights. And with a $20,000 total cash purse on the line, even taking home a bronze at Killington's annual Rails 2 Riches can help to seriously jumpstart a young athlete's career.
Registration for this event fills up faster than you can say "Sally slides sideways on Saturday", but even for those not competing, the night is a party filled with action and of course a thumpin' soundtrack. So, grab a camera and cheer the skiers and boarders on as they throw it down under the lights.
