Chicken Jam Update: Powder Jam 2011

Last night Mammoth Mountain saw another 3-4″ of snowfall. Bad news is that the Slopestyle contest was cancelled. The great news is that there is tons of fresh powder.  With so many talented riders all in one room, we didn’t want to miss this opportunity. In celebration of all this fresh powder we introduced the Powder Jam 2011 video contest. Riders were teamed up in groups of 3 and were equipped with Go Pro cameras. Teams will be judged on style, creativity and skill. We gave them the following tasks: air&style, line and jib.

The teams that come back with the best footage will be awarded on an individual and team basis. The winner will be announced on April 11th,along with the purse prize and featured on roxy.com! Best of footage will also be posted! Good luck everyone!

Torah Bright: Chicken Jam Day Two

Today all the girls at the Chicken Jam got to enjoy the 36 inches of snow that fell last night. We spent the morning lapping chair 3 getting face shots on the way down and sprayed by people on the way up. So much snow and so much fun! As far as my first pipe contest of the year, Kelly Clark, Elena Hight and I decided to sit this one out and let the younger riders shine and despite the whipping wind gusts, these up and comers rode so well. Tomorrow is the Slopestyle so cross your fingers the wind dies down and the sun comes out!

In other news, I decided to give myself a haircut last night, what do you think? Not too bad considering I used a pair of toe nail scissors for the trim! Check us out tomorrow from 10-2 on the Webcast www.roxy.com/chickenjam!

Cheers, Torah

Chicken Jam Update: Contest is on!

The Contest is on! Half-pipe qualifiers/semi-finals  are scheduled today from 11:30–1pm. If conditions are good, the contest is going into finals immediately after. Slopestyle has been delayed until tomorrow due to the wind.

The riders woke up to inches of fresh powder! Everyone’s having so much fun with all this record-breaking powder at Mammoth & and the riders are excited to get out there. Above, some of the riders took a pic to commemorate Mammoth getting ready to break their snowfall record! Currently they are at about 576″, and once they hit 578.5″ they will have broken a record! We can’t wait!

Torah Bright: Chicken Jam Day One

I finally made it to Mammoth for the Roxy Chicken Jam, canceled flights and a long late night drive from LAX but I’m here and just in time for another huge storm. Heaps of snow and 100mph wind gusts are not exactly ideal conditions for my first contest of the year (I’ve been in the backcountry all season filming for my new movie project) but it’s good to back in the scene and hanging with the Roxy girls for the week. So far, day one’s been canceled and if we get the 7 feet of snow they’ve been predicting, this year’s Chicken Jam might be a powder contest. I’ll keep you posted as the event/storm unfolds.

Cheers, Torah

Roxy Chicken Jam Bound…

Greetings from the Roxy bus!  We have a packed vehicle this year as the crew makes their way up to the 2011 Roxy Chicken Jam at Mammoth Mountain.

The bus made a pit-stop in Lancaster this morning to get chains.  Conditions up in Mammoth are absolutely unbelievable.  According to the Mammoth Mountain website there is an additional 6-7′ of fresh powder (yes, FEET not inches!) expected by Monday.  Wow!  Hopefully this means soft landings and not weather delays.

Stay tuned to all the latest right here on the Chicken Jam blog.
