Okemo Mountain Resort in Ludlow, Vt., will light up the night skies with a little help from the town Fire Department Saturday, Feb. 27.
The Amp Energy Light the Night Rail Jam invites skiers and snowboarders to throw down some tricks while the Ludlow Fire Department throws some light on Okemo's Bull Run trail during this unique competition.
The Killarney is throwing in $250 in prize money and they're throwing a party after the event.
The competition will be a jam format with special guest judge Olympic Gold Medalist and Okemo Snowboard Ambassador Ross Powers.
Half of the proceeds from the $20 entry fee will go to support the Ludlow Fire Department for its 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 starts at 4 p.m. in Okemo's Clock Tower Base Lodge. Competition begins at 6 p.m. Spectators are welcome and The Sitting Bull will be open for food and refreshment, and a place for those who prefer indoors viewing. Boston's WAAF will be on hand to supply music for the event.
