Rail Jam 2013

On Friday, anyone driving past the horseshoe in Southwest would have a hard time ignoring the mountain of snow piled up on Southwest Beach.  Previously called the Metawampe Stompe and located near the Campus Center, this year's Rail Jam drew skiers, snowboarders and onlooker alike to the island of grass on the southern edge of campus.  As someone who can neither ski nor snowboard, I took my place in the latter of the three categories, lining up along the barrier to appreciate the competitions jumps, tricks and, yes, wipeouts.
