Montana Rail Jam

Big Sky Resort in Montana holds an annual rail jam every December called R.U.St. This was the 5th year for the event. Montana is a cold place, temps were in the -15 degrees region during the jam. Somehow with freezing arctic like weather people still seemed to show up and watch. Sessions AM Kyle Miller strolled by while returning home for the holidays. Montana loc dog Shane Stalling was also present to do some jibbing and get a little thing I like to call "frost bite". Miller walked away with the win and some numb feet. After the jam it began to snow heavily for the next couple days bringing us a couple feet of fresh to play in. With Big Sky's massive terrain and small crowds it made some of the best pow days thus far this season.

The Grand Prix, "Progression Session" took place last night under snowy skies at Copper Mountain. Tim Humphreys was in town to compete for a chunk of the prize money.
The setup was a flat step down style jump into a hitching post jib with transitions on all for sides. 20 riders took to the course and five were giving the nod to ride in the finals. Tim rode supper strong in qualifiers and made the cut.
Finals were best of three runs. On Tim's first run he landed a picture perfect cab 900 but fell trying a miller flip hand plant on the hitching post. A run that would have landed 1st or 2nd place. Tim went for the same tricks on his next two runs but with snow pilling up on the run in, speed was becoming difficult to obtain. He wasn’t able to put down a perfect run in the finals but still came away with a very respectable 5th place. Great job Tim!

Update from Snowy Sweden.
/Andreas Gidlund

It has been snowing pretty much now and it seems to stay here…
Witch doesn't seem to happen often… especially not here, close to where i live.
We have been out shooting a couple of spots.
My friend hurt himself on a tree down rail and had to get 11 stiches… ouch…
After that i went to 2 spots alone the coming 2 days… Witch went pretty well, but its not that fun to do a street spot all alone…
After that we took a day off and went out partying, wich was super fun and well needed after holding a shovel all week long! Hehe
Now today we started shooting again and got some sweet shots!
Waking up pretty early tomorrow to keep on shooting!
