Cricket Campus Rail Jam – Boise State University

So it’s been far too long since I’ve been active on here. I have definitely missed posting but have been distracted by the beautiful weather. I’m going to date back  to April and fill in the blanks.

Last year was my first experience with the Cricket Campus Rail Jam and I can honestly say that I was way stoked on it. This “grassroots snow sports movement, dedicated to promoting the amateur ski and snowboard scene,” brings campus across the country alive. The Galvanic crew has the ability to transform a dead college campus plot of land into an epic urban rail haven with the snap of the fingers. Last year’s scene was a bit mellow as it was a fairly unknown event. Year two of the Jam would prove that the word of mouth had spread for this event.

Great weather, hype and an improved location and  brought the masses out for the 2009 event. I rode with 70* temps warming my soul to a crowd of stoked fans filling the south-east corner of the BSU parking lot. Snowboarders and skiers were already greasing the various rail setups only amplifying the enthusiasm of the masses. I was eager to get out and start shooting.

After covering some basic angles I opted for the elevated perspective of some neighboring trees. Although scratched and bloody I was siked to have the view of the riders and the crowd below.
