Killington Rails to Riches Rail Jam and Party

Rails to Riches Rail Jam and Party at the Peak

The Second Annual Rails to Riches Rail Jam featuring a $15,000 cash prize purse will be held on Saturday, December 16 at Killlington, VT.. Skiers and riders are invited to participate in the open jam format. The qualifiers will consist of a limited number of skiers and riders and will feature riders in the morning and skiers in the afternoon. The venue will be set up on the lower portion of Highline, an easy walk for competitors and spectators from the K-1 Lodge.

The excitement will undoubtedly peak during the finals of the competition which will take place under the lights and consist of an hour-long open jam session while a bonfire burns nearby. Winners will be crowned at the conclusion of the rail jam followed by a fireworks display set to light up the December sky over Killington Resort. The finals will begin at 5:00 p.m. with fireworks slated to start at 6:15 p.m.

Saturday night’s Party at the Peak will be the perfect way to celebrate the conclusion of the rail jam. The Party at the Peak will take place from 5:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. The K-1 Gondola will be transporting partygoers up and down the mountain to the event. The party will include a DJ, a free screening of Matchstick Productions new movie Push (set to start at 7:30 p.m.) and a cash bar.
