Grind, shred, and carve your way to the X Games at Hunter Mountain this season. The United States of America Snowboard Association (USASA) hosts the Catskill Mountain Series, a regional snowboard and free ski series for professional and amateur competitors. This month, CMS presents the Rail Jam X Games Qualifier on January 12. Hunter’s street-tough Empire Terrain Park is the site of the qualifier, tricked out with metal rails, pipes, and jumps for a trail that mimics an urban obstacle course. Boarders and skiers will tear up the terrain for judges, and winners from each category (ski men and women, and snowboard men and women) move on to compete at CMS’s Rail Jam event to be held at the Winter X Games in Aspen, Colorado, on January 28. USASA membership is required to compete, and memberships are available at the event or online. $30 pre-registration; $35 day of.
