Winter Terrain Park Series

The Wintergreen Terrain Park hosts a series of five events throughout the season -- three Rail Jams and two Slopestyles. The events are open to skiers and snowboarders of all ages; valid lift ticket is required. Join us for one or all five of the events!

Rail Jam is a jib contest where skiers and snowboarders perform tricks on rails, boxes, pipes, towers, wall rides, etc. Rail Jams usually have three feature choices for the rider to hit on a run. Every rider takes as many runs as time allows.

Slopestyle Competitors perform tricks while descending a course, moving around, over, across, up, or down terrain features. Slopestyle contests consist of choosing your own line in a terrain park using a variety of boxes, jibs and jumps.
