Hotham Basin Rail Jam - Friday 29 July 2011
The Hotham Junior Snowboarding weekend began with a bang as 55 top junior snowboarders from around Australia competed in the Hotham Basin Rail Jam. Entrants travelled from Cooma, Jindabyne, Mt Buller, Melbourne, Coffs Harbour, Wagga Wagga, Geelong, Sydney and Mansfield with a strong local representation from Hotham and Dinner Plain.
The Hotham Terrain Park Crew rebuilt the entire Basin Terrain Park for the event with 6 features installed. The fridge bonk proved to be a popular jib in the final with Grommet Boys finalist Stan Williams wowing the crowd with a front 360 nose tap over it. A 600 box, Phat Bertha and T-Box at the top of the park were followed by the Up Bar, Down-Flat-Down and Fridge bonk.
Entrants were amped by the high level of competition and are set for a great weekend with a Big Air on Saturday and SBX on Sunday. Place-getters were hooked up with prizes and vouchers from The Boardbox and Pinnacle in Hotham Central.
