Rome Pre-Jib Recap

The 9th Annual Rome Pre-jib was held at Appalachian Ski Mtn. on December 23rd! This was one of 10 stops on the 2012 tour through the US & Canada. After being postponed from the previous week due to the lack of weather, some cold weather came through and the crew worked hard to pull some sick features together for the set up!

Unfortunately not enough to make the Snake Jib happen but some really fun features on one tier that allowed the riders to get super creative! One hour jam format and $500 broken down into 3 $100, 2 $50, and 5 $20 to be given out to anyone stepping it up and throwing down some bangers made for a pretty epic day on the hill.

1st Place – Austin Leonard – taking home some cash plus a season pass and board, boot, binding setup!
2nd Place – Julien Passajou – got a hold of some cash and a board and binding setup!
3rd Place – Jason Anderson – rounded up some cash plus boots and a backpack!
1st Place Lady – Lauren Pandolfi
Standout Grom – Reilly Tardiff

Pre-Jib Winners were Hooked Up!

Everyone was stoked after a long hour of hiking and getting hooked up with CASH, Pre Jib tees, patches, beanies, water bottles, and delicious hot dogs!
Rome has made this a killer event every year and huge thanks to them, all the riders, App Terrain Park, and Recess Skate and Snow for making it happen!
