You won’t have to drive all the way to Big Bear to hit the slopes on May 7. San Diego will be transformed into a winter wonderland--or at least Qualcomm Stadium will.

The annual Campus Rail Jam Tour is making a stop in San Diego this year. Snowboarders and skiers will have the chance to compete for the title of the Campus Rail Jam Tour (CRJT). The tour is a grassroots snow sports movement that discovers the “up-and-comers” and those who are “about to blow up.”

“Our main goal is to promote the amateur ski and snowboarding scene while involving students and faculty in a live event production demonstration. This unique experience allows CRJT staff to work hand-in-hand with university student programming and campus-based clubs,” said Campus Rail Jam Co-Founder, Dan Genco.

The free tour combines snowboarding, art, music, progressive business and environmental activism. San Diego is anticipated to be one of the most action packed stops--as well as the only stop in California. The tour will also feature local pro skateboarders tearing it up on a half pipe.

Friday, beginning at 5:00 p.m., join the estimated 30,000 spectators. The tour offers an admission price of free--so you won't be breaking the bank on this snow excursion. Guests should be on the lookout for past and future Winter X-Games and Olympian athletes--a few stopped by previous CRJT’s as judges and competitors.

Instead of catching a wave this Friday, hit the slopes with the Campus Rail Jam Tour.
