25 Tons of Snow to Fall on UCSD
~The 2010 Campus Rail Jam Tour Mobilized by Cricket and Ford Hits San Diego on Thursday, April 8~
~Event Completely Free and Open to the Public~
San Diego – February 16, 2010 –
The fun experienced at last year’s tour is back! On Thursday, April 8 the Sun God Lawn at UCSD will once again become a winter wonderland when skiers and snowboarders from across the nation participate in the Campus Rail Jam Tour Mobilized by Cricket and Ford as part of the third annual national urban snow sport competition.
The course will be built on Thursday morning using 25 tons of snow trucked in from the local mountains. Starting at 5:00 p.m. that day, dozens of skiers and snowboarders will traverse three treacherous rails on a 25’ wide, 25’ tall and 100’ long course. The competitors will be vying for their share of cash and prizes that will be awarded to the top skiers and snowboarders.
Tour organizers expect attendance at UCSD’s urban snow sport event to number in the hundreds or thousands. Last year’s finals, held in Portland, Oregon, were attended by more than 5,000 people.
