The Big Kahuna Rail Jam

BBQ and beer garden open at 11am

Join us for rails and a BBQ! All day long, our spring park will be sculpted in front of the Alpine Lodge. Come and test your jibbing skills, or just enjoy the spectacle.
On Saturday, the best place to spectate will be from our Vancouver Island Brewery beer garden, featuring a BBQ. Enjoy it all to the sounds of live entertainment by Anela Kaliamoe on site.

  • The competition is a jam format. Jam format mean riders are constantly hiking the Spring park and hitting features one after another in no particular order. This gives riders the opportunity to break new ground over the course of the day rather than getting only two or three runs in a competition format. The reason for this is to create a scene of togetherness rather than a “me against you” mentality. The park riders are strongly encouraged to help each other out, give each other pointers and hoot, holler and scream until the Rockstar runs dry…which it will!
