KEYSTONE – Cold temperatures and outstanding efforts by the snowmaking and terrain park crews led to the opening Tuesday of Keystone’s A51 terrain park. The park opens with the Park Lane Jump Line as well as Jib Alley. A51 will have a total of five jumps and more than 20 features. The resort will move the features from the park’s current location into the permanent home for the winter season in the A51 area on Dercum Mountain. Also, Keystone Resort invited some of the biggest ski and snowboard stars to preview the park and help our park crew test and refine the jumps including: Andreas Wiig, Torstein Horgmo, Simon Dumont, TJ Schiller, Jossi Wells, Tim Russell, Andreas Hatveit, Haldor Helgason, Ryan Cruze, Chris Chance, Scott See and Joe Mango. Every season Keystone hosts multiple events in A51, this year including the Gatorade Free Flow Tour and Volcom Peanut Butter and Rail Jam. Gatorade Free Flow Tour is set for Jan. 23-24 and will search for the country’s best and brightest amateur snowboarders and skiers. Free Flow Tour is the “official amateur series” of the Winter Dew Tour and brings the opportunity for local talent to compete against the world’s best at Winter Dew Tour. The winner of the Free Flow Finals earns a wildcard spot to compete against the industries top professionals.Volcom Peanut Butter and Rail Jam will be held April 10. The Peanut Butter and Rail Jam is Volcom’s free amateur snowboard contest series. The goal of the series is to give something back to young riders. Instead of having rails or features set up in a row, three rails are set up side-by-side, creating a single, large rail zone. The event is absolutely free, on a first come first serve basis, and boasts tons of free prizes and PB&J sandwiches. Also, everyone who enters walks away with a Volcom PBRJ shirt and other prizes. -Daily News Staff Report
