Louie Vito Rail Jam
Sat, Dec 30
Mark your calendars for this annual event featuring Mad River's own hometown hero, Olympic and X-Games superstar Louie Vito.
The day kicks off with head-to-head competition on the slopes in a rail jam with categories for all ages groups. Register with a food item or monetary donation and directly benefit local charities plus get in the running for the largest prize giveaway of the season. Head inside to get your gear signed by Mr. Vito himself and then stay for the evening's live music featuring a band Swagg. Once the sun sets we'll light up the sky with a fireworks display you won't want to miss.
