For seven consecutive seasons, Louie and the Vito Family have hosted an annual for-charity rail jam on the slopes of Mad River Mountain designed to give back to the local community that has been supportive through out his career. This season is no different. The event has blossomed into one of the largest freestyle events in the Midwest featuring over $30,000 in prizes, live entertainment with Olympic snowboarder Trevor Andrew's Band Trouble Andrew, Fireworks, and the Regions top rail riding.
Mad River Mountain, voted to have the Midwest's top terrain park consecutively two years running by OnTheSnow.com visitors, has plans to represent the Midwest with another quality park production. The Capital Park Crew in collaboration with Peak Resorts-The Program will begin construction of the event course late Wednesday, December 28th with plans to complete the venue for visual inspection sometime Thursday. Photos and videos of the construction will be posted on Mad River Mountain's Facebook, website and will be available upon request.
The Eighth Annual Louie Vito Rail Jam is slated to kick-off Friday at 5pm and will end with each and every participant walking away with a prize. Event placement, winner of the grand prize trip to Oregons famed Windell's Summer Snowboard Camp, and an extensive Fireworks display will go off at 10pm.
Entry to The Buckeye States largest rail jam is free with one non-perishable food item. All proceeds and food stuffs will be donated to the local St Vincent Depaul Food Pantry at a time of year that it means most, the Holidays. Join us on the slopes and in the lodge for a great time and an event that gives back to the local community that the Vito Family calls home.
