The annual Burton Cattleman’s Rail Jam is set to go down again on July 12th. This is always one of the best events of the season – no longer invite only, for the last few years the format lets riders compete for a spot on the replica rail in the Frank Mt Buller Terrain Park during the day of the event. The only other way to be in this is to be a previous winner of the comp. You can register for quals out the front of Freeride Boardstore at 9am on the day.
Every year, crowds pack the bottom of the rail for an epic night – I’m sure this year will be no different. Full press release below with all the details.
Sydney, Tuesday July 1st 2014 – Burton Snowboards is pleased to announce the return of Australia’s premier rail event, the Burton Cattleman’s Rail Jam, Saturday July 12th.
In it’s 9th year, Australia’s best snowboarders will descend on Mt Buller to compete under lights for a share of $7000 worth of cash and prizes.
The competition’s format will once again offer the chance for Australia’s best up-and-coming snowboard talent to be a part of the night-time final, with qualifiers taking place throughout the day on the Cattleman’s Replica Stair Set located in the Frank Mt Buller Terrain Park.
Historically, Cattleman’s has unfolded as an ‘invite only’ event, but once again in 2014 the only way a rider can guarantee automatic qualification is if they have previously won the event. Riders can register on the Saturday July 12th out the front of Freeride Boardstore at 9am, however spots are limited.
The top 10 qualifiers from the day’s heats will then compete against previous competition winners on Mt Buller’s famed Cattleman’s Stair Set in the Village Square for a share of the $7K prize pool, plus product from Mophie for best trick.
Burton Cattleman’s Rail Jam partners include the Frank Mt Buller Terrain Park, Skullcandy, Mini, Transfer Snowboard Magazine, Corona and Mophie.
