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.
