Mark this one down in history. There are a lot of us who will remember what just went down at the Marhar Backyard Rail Jam in Downtown Grand Rapids. From the Griffins to flocks of snowboard enthusiasts, we were there. Here is a quick recap of the jam.
Jam sessions started around one in the afternoon. It was basically open for anyone to ride, to have fun on, and learn something new. This crazyness lasted the rest of the night. Around 6:30 however, Marhar threw in a little competition that put cash on the line. I think the word was out because people from around Michigan and the Midwest came out to see who could or would win. We caught parts of the day on film.
We also have a ton of pictures to sort through, but check out the snap shots Jack over at SnappedCore.com took of the night. He knows how to point and shoot.
We should all give the crew over at Marhar Snowboards a pat on the back for making this event happen. They put a ton into this thing to make it work. I also have to thank Josh and Nate for having Parx out to help put the event on. It has been great to work with you and I can’t wait to meet up again.
One last shout out has to go out to all of the people who came ride and to those who came to support this event. Without people showing up, we wouldn’t be able to have as good as an event as we did. I hope to see you all at the next Marhar Snowboards Backyard Rail Jam.

It is hard to believe that a year has came and gone as fast as it has in 2012. All that means is that it is time for another Marhar Backyard Rail Jam in downtown Grand Rapids, MI. Last year was off the hook and this year will be better than last. Bring your skis, bring your snowboards, and lets jam.
Marhar Rail Jam
After last year, we are so glad that we were asked back to help Marhar put on this event. Like I said, last year was a blast and I have no doubt that this year will be the same. The crew from Marhar will be there throwing out swag all day and night, and the whole event is free to anyone who wants to come out and jam.
Check out a couple videos from last years event.
This was literally one of the best events we attended last year. If you have never met the Marhar Snowboard crew, it is time you get to meet them. They are great people and make killer boards that are made right here in Michigan. If nothing else, stop out and say hi for a minute or two, we would both love to meet you and talk snow for awhile. Don’t miss out because it is going to be a great time if you ride or not. So stoked!
Here is a link to the event page on Facebook. Make sure to invite all of your friends.
Let us know if you have any questions about the Marhar Backyard Rail Jam.

Each week we highlight our favorite piece of social media from the snowboard and ski world and give it our “I’d Hit That” stamp of approval. All we want to do is give recognition to all of the hard working folks in the Action Sports Industry.
Sit back, enjoy, and take a look at this weeks “I’d Hit That” stamp of approval.
One of the best ways to snowboard and ski… In your backyard. That is exactly what we love to do, what we love to promote, and is what these Michigan shredders did. Not only did they do it, they did it well. Real Real well. Anyone who has a night light this knows why this video is Approved.
