Sunday, Nov. 19, 9 a.m.—KILLINGTON— It’s tradition at its finest: Killington’s Loaded Turkey Rail Jam is back to kick off another great season of park competitions, Sunday, Nov. 19, on K-1’s Upper Downdraft. Registration will be held on the third floor of K-1 Lodge, 9-10 a.m., for athletes to pick up a bib. A lift ticket or season pass is required for this event, and helmets are required.

For the annual first park jam of the season, the Beast is serving up “Thanksgiving dinner” on the podium with a frozen turkey going out to first place and all the fixings going to second and third place. Plus, first place competitors earn free entry into Rails 2 Riches rail jam being held later in the season, where big cash prizes are up for grabs.
