SITZMARK – There was a large crowd of both spectators and participants at the Fifth Annual Skidmark Terrain Park Rail Jam up at Sitzmark Ski Area on Saturday, Feb. 12.

Shag and Spicolli from Lib-Tech, Sitzmark General Manager Jonathan Keener, Dan and Paul from GearBoxFilms, Gergis from Gergis Maximus Photography, Sarah DeLayne, Kathy Vaughan and STP Crew Volunteers Angela Vaughan and Tyler Fife worked with shovels and rakes all day Friday to get all the freestyle features dialed in. Plus, Sick Donkey Records not only provided a complete sound system, but DJ Sticky also brought a reggae and dancehall musical showcase that included African DJ Selector Jigsy, Jamaican vocalist Lawrenece ‘Mistah Chatman’ Chapman and local favorite Adrian Xavier and Essential I. Jesse Baker was as awesome as usual hosting and announcing the event.”
