When lots and lots of snow caused the slopestyle competition at the 2011 Roxy Chicken Jam at Mammoth Mountain to be cancelled, the event organizers got creative. The Roxy Powder Jam was a one day video competition sponsored by GoPro.
“This year’s Chicken Jam was a bit of a surprise for all of us. I don’t think I’ve ever seen weather conditions less ideal for a contest,’’ said Amber Stackhouse, Roxy Snow Team Manager. “Despite the weather, everyone loves riding powder with friends so we rolled with the punches and made use of the record snowfall for our first ever powder jam.”
Kelly Marren won the Roxy Chicken Jam halfpipe last weekend in a contest that was affected by heavy snow and wind. The slopestyle and mascot jams were cancelled due to weather.
Marren won with a run that included a frontside crippler and a Michaelchuck. Newcomers Leslie Glenn and 10-year-old Chloe Kim rounded out the podium.
With no slopestyle competition, the Chicken Jam organizers came up with a way to take advantage of the epic conditions – the Roxy Powder Jam sponsored by GoPro.
Finnish upstart Enni Rukajärvi claimed the slopestyle title and $20,000 at the 29th Burton US Open last weekend in Vermont.
For most of the season Jamie Anderson has seemed unstoppable, and she was able to claim the Overall TTR title just by qualifying for the slopestyle finals. However she was unable to claim yet another title this season, thanks to the efforts of Enni Rukajärvi in the rainy conditions. Jamie pulled out the stops with a big switch backside 540 indy, but Rukajarvi was able to top Anderson by two points with a run including frontside 360 indy grab, a backside 540 indy grab and a Cab 540 mute grab. Young Norwegian rider Silje Norendal took third place.
Sixteen of the world’s top snowboarders were welcomed to Japan on Saturday (26th February) for the 15th annual Toyota Big Air competition. I was fortunate enough to gain media access to the event at the Makomanai stadium in Sapporo to watch the evening’s events unfold as riders went head-to-head to be crowned King of Air.
Kelly Clark notched her seventh win in a row at the final US Grand Prix at Mammoth Mountain. Clark’s halfpipe win setup what should be another epic battle for the overall TTR title at the US Open next weekend.
“This is definitely a big win for me. I came away with the Dew Tour title and the Grand Prix title now. I’m looking forward to next week and seeing if I can’t step it up in the TTR and the Global Open series,” Clark said.
Clark’s winning run was a front 9, back 5, front 7, cab 7 and stalefish. She was followed by Gretchen Bleiler who landed her back 9. Canadian Sarah Conrad rounded out the podium.
