Everyone from pros to the keyboard cowboys taking the day off work were on the same playing field for the banked slalom contest.  The speed and technical turns of the course caught snowboarders of all ability levels off guard during the race.  ThirtyTwo team riders that raced and then judged the rail jam were JP Walker, Scott Stevens, Chris Grenier, Brandon Hobush and Christian Hobush.  Some of the other heavy hitters that turned out to race were Seth Huot, Bjorn Leines and Chris Beresford.
