Rail Jam Kicks Off 2006/7 Event Season at Lake Louise

Calgary, AB – November 13, 2006 –With plenty of early season snow and great conditions, Lake Louise Mountain Resort is gearing up to host its first event of the season with the annual Heavy Metal Rail Jam on Saturday, November 18, 2006.

Open to both skiers and snowboarders, the annual rail competition will be set in a jam format so that each rider has a number of options and hits. There are plenty of prizes to be won: from cash cash purses and Helly Hansen Bro 2 Pro sponsorships, to the intriguing “Vonzipper Golden Muff Style Award”. Not to mention, the Burger King himself will be on the mountain handing out treats!

The event will be judged by a panel of industry representatives. Overall talent and skill will help the judges choose their champions, and the public and media is invited to attend the event for photograph opportunities and to cheer on their favorite skiers and riders.

The course is set to be located on Lower Wiwaxy (weather dependent) and helmets are mandatory. Entry fee is $20 + GST and registration is open online at or from 9am until 10am at the Kokanee Kabin at Lake Louise Mountain Resort on the day of the event. Space is limited and this event usually sells out, so register now!
