Looking for a fun snow weekend now that winter’s just about over? Look no further than the Roxy Chicken Jam, being held at Mammoth Mountain on March 27th-29th.
The Roxy Chicken Jam, in its fifth year, is a six-star Swatch TTR World Tour Event and will crown the 2008/2009 Women’s TTR World Champion with the World Champion. The all-women snowboard event will bring together the top pro women snowboarders from around the world to compete in slopestyle and superpipe events for a combined purse prize worth $50,000.
As a six-star TTR event, the contest is one of the most prestigious all-women’s snowboard events in the world. The best female snowboarders from around the world flock to the Roxy Chicken Jam each year, including top Roxy riders Torah Bright – 2007 Women’s TTR World Champion and 2009 X Games gold medalist; Kjersti Buaas – 2006 Olympic bronze medal snowboarder; as well as top pros Gretchen Bleiler, Kelly Clark, Erin Comstock, Hannah Teter and Alexis Waite.
In addition to awarding titles for each division, the unique event will feature a festival atmosphere with live performances by Santigold and Cold War Kids, hair by Paul Mitchell, touch ups by Covergirl, Roxy demo boards and skis, and other giveaways and goodies.
For the second year in a row, the iconic mascot of the Roxy Chicken Jam, the snowboarding chicken, is challenging all willing and spirited mascots to a superpipe competition.
Open to guys and girls of all ages, species and fur types – including college and high school mascots, professionals and the typical flying squirrels and bears – the Mascot Superpipe Competition offers a $6,000 prize purse, with 1st place taking home $3,000, 2nd taking $2,000 and 3rd taking $1,000. The mascot contest will be judged by official Roxy Chicken Jam contest judges with similar criteria to any other pipe contest, awarding additional points for those who choose to wear a bulky mascot head…the bigger the head the more points!
So come to watch, come to ride, come decked out in full mascot costume and compete against the Roxy Chicken and Wooly from Mammoth Mountain.
