Huntington Beach, CA—The third annual Roxy Chicken Jam is set to take place March 22-25, 2007 in Park City, UT. With $30,000 up for grabs, the addition of the Superpipe competition and valuable WTTR ratings points as the last six-star contest of the year and the deciding event for the 2006/2007 season, this year’s Roxy Chicken Jam will be bigger than ever before.
The top pros in women’s snowboarding have been invited, including Janna Meyen, Gretchen Bleiler, Kelly Clark, Tara Dakides, Alexis Waite and Hana Beaman along with many more. Reigning champion Natasza Zurek will be there to defend her crown, along with Roxy team rider and superpipe master Torah Bright.
Continuing upon the popular tradition of previous years, the event will kick off with the open-entry qualifying rounds. The top five finishers in each division, slopestyle and superpipe, will be entered into the main event to compete alongside the pros for a spot in the super final round and a chance at the crown.
In addition to the competition, the Roxy Chicken Jam will also include a fun festival on the snow with music, giveaways and tons of other activities including a chance to try out the newest Roxy skis and snowboards.
