Thursday Rail Jams at Oglebay

The winter sports season is in full swing at Oglebay’s Nutting Winter Sports Complex, and now guests have one more reason to hit the slopes this winter — Thursday night Rail Jams.

Sponsored by Alpine Skis & Boards, the Thursday night Rail Jam series challenges skiers and snowboarders with terrain park events, jumps, rail tricks, freestyle and more.

Rail Jams began yesterday, and will continue on Thursdays through Feb. 15. Doors open at 4 p.m. and Rail Jam events will be held from 6-8 p.m. Rail Jam events are open to the public and admission is free with a valid lift ticket.

Participants will earn points at each Rail Jam event as they compete for the grand prize — a 2018-19 season pass to Oglebay’s Winter Sports Complex. A scoreboard will be displayed inside the Ski Lodge and the grand-prize winner will be announced at the Feb. 15 Rail Jam event.

Rail Jam events feature fun themes, exciting prizes and food specials.
