Our virtual rail jam is back with epic prizes!

Presented by SMITH Optics!

Back by popular demand, it's our very own virtual rail jam! During the specified dates (Jan. 13 - Jan. 26) come out on your own time and capture some footage of yourself hitting the rails in our Smith Park. Then, you have until January 27 to post your video edit to Instagram showing off your best tricks. Your edit can feature multiple clips, but must be no longer than 1 min 30 seconds. We have a ton of prizes to give out, sponsored by Smith Optics, Unlimited Skate & Snow, FRESH Skis, Burton, & Line.
