Snowboard companies Lib Tech and Snowboy Productions are hosting a rail jam to bring the snowboard atmosphere to the streets of San Francisco. With $10,000 in prizes, music, food, and raffles, the event is sure to pump people up about the world of snowboarding. Across the Atlantic Ocean, London is hoping to do the same. The Relentless Freeze Festival to Battersea Power Station London is bringing a ski and snowboard event to let non snowboarders and skiers experience the lifestyle. Like the event in San Francisco, the Relentless Freeze Festival will bring the snowboard atmosphere to the streets with music, food, and lots of steeze with their 100 meter long jump. Snowboarders and skiers are expected to wow the crowd with “a full blown trick off where we can guarantee to see the sickest tricks in the world”.
