Posted by & filed under snowboard events.

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.”
