After getting hit with one of the biggest storms of the year, Brighton Resort hosted the 4th Annual ThirtyTwo Day on Friday. Contestants took full advantage of the 32 inches of fresh powder, and bust out their bags of tricks for ThirtyTwo Day's Helltrack Banked Slalom and Rail Jam contests. The contest combines results from both the banked slalom and the rail jam, awarding the overall winners with a golden ThirtyTwo boot trophy, a new ThirtyTwo snowboard, boots, shoes, and $320 cash.

Kids love rail jams, and the level of progression by the riders on the Brighton rails yesterday made it a contest to remember! Everest Arnold slayed the rail contest with so many solid tricks! One of the highlights from Everest's run was a gap 450 to boardslide on the down rail. Alexa McArty locked in a gap to front board on the close out and a backlip on the down rail to win the women's division.
