2010 Mikey P Jam: March 13th at Terry Peak, South Dakota

3rd Annual Mikey P. Jam


March lucky 13th, 2010

What to expect for the 3rd Annual Mikey P Jam? It will be a similar format to the last two years, Fun!

The course is a combination of rails, box slides and big jumps. Riders are judged on: variety of tricks, amplitude, style, and execution/landing. It is all done in a jam format that keeps the fun factor high. The Area 76 Terrain Park employees keep the course smoothed out and sculpted for your jibbing pleasure. Along with the perfectly groomed park we have DJ Nevada & DJ Kelly spinning the music. There is plenty of room for spectators to ride through the area and check out the high flying action. Non-riding family and friends are able to walk over from the lodge to the terrain park.

Registration will be at the Stewart Lodge from 8-10am. Riders Meeting at Area 76 Terrain Park at 10:30. Competition to follow.

$20 dollar entrance fee, if needed $10.00 lift ticket for non pass holders. Entrance includes long sleeve t-shirt with Mikey P Jam artwork, unique park features for the jam, loads of fun, awards ceremony with general raffle for all participants! Oh yeah, an after party with live band Noise Tractor and DJ’s. Push up contest and handstand contest into the night..

The 2nd Annual Mikey P Jam took place this last season at Terry Peak Ski Area, under another big blue magical sky. It was truly perfect weather for this snow sport competition/celebration.

Registration was bright and early at the Stewart Lodge from 8-10am. We had most of the prizes laid out for the early morning stoke at registration. It really looked impressive with more than enough schwag to cover two tables. Custom Mikey P Jam Mugs and Hats, Boards, Skis, Wii Nintendo, goggles, Hats, Gloves, Bindings, etc… We had some of the finest Mikey P Jam volunteers holding down the registration, which was a busy job with a mad rush at registration closing time, go figure… We registered participants up until 10:30 and had to cut some off, sorry! There still were a record number of participants with 104 riders.

Riders’ meeting was close to 10:30, with most of the riders there anxious to get riding, it was kept short. Riders were told they would be judged on style, amplitude/aggressiveness, difficulty, variety of tricks, and of course the landing. All riders were told be courteous, and encouraging to all the other riders, “who will be the next Mikey P”… With that the 15 & Under Boys skiers and boarders were released to hike to the staging area at the top of Area 76 Terrain Park for an 11am start. On Schedule! The action was aggressive and progressive. For a real living of what happens join us again this year, March lucky 13th 2010, for the 3rd Mikey P Jam.
