On Saturday, Feb. 28, Recess Skate and Snow held the sixth annual wRECklESS Rail Jam at Beech Mountain Resort. This year’s event brought in 70 snowboarders to compete, which was quite a bit more than organizer and RECESS owner J.P. Pardy expected.

“For a snowboard-only event, we had a lot of people come out,” Pardy said.

“The level of competition this year was probably the highest I have seen in this area ever.”

The competition boasted a whole heap of great prizes, most impressive of which was the $1,000 cash prize for the overall winner of the competition.

First place advanced took home the coveted $1,000 cash prize, while second place received $600 and third place nabbed $400. Other prizes included a brand new Capita snowboard, Union bindings, SPY goggles, Recess Gift Certificates and much more.

The results of the competition are as follows:
