ChamJam Scheduled for March 5-9, 2001

The ChamJam is the longest running, largest Alpine Winter freesports event in Europe. It’s the biggest bang, at the largest bash at the end of the European season. The snowboarding is brutal and explosive, with some of the world’s top athletes cutting loose.

It is the only event where professional and amateur skiers and snowboarders gather to compete against each other vying for that all-important entry to the X Games.

From the 5th – 9th March 2001 the best and the rest will gather on the legendary Grands Monets, to compete in big air, halfpipe and boarder cross competitions.

Watched by fellow competitors, professionals and supporters – accompanied by live music and top DJ performances
