Thanks to ScottSimock for this video of the opening weekend at Blue Mountian, PA. Scott is from the Mid-Atlantic, but is currenlty down in Florida studing video productions. The song in the video is Blockhead, “cheer up, you’re not dead yet”.
On Friday, November 14th 2008, the 4th annual PIST Rail Jam was hosed on the University of Pittsburgh campus. With over 300 in attendance, the event was a great success. The Pittsburgh Intercollegiate Snowboard Team (PIST) did a great job of setting up two features and making sure the best intercollegiate riders from the regional area were at the event.

Last Saturday, the Peak Ski and Snowboard Center in Monroeville, PA held the first Rock My Box Rail Jam. Even though the weather was very cold and rainy, there was a great turnout of local riders. The event hard two features with a large drop in ramp. Shark, the announcer, kept everyone amped with his loud voice and crazy antics. At the end of the day, tons of free gear was given out and Josh Zerkel of Cheat Lake, WV took down top snowboard honors.
