A Snow Jam in the Czech Republic

Czech Republican snowboard-rock-star, Martin Cernik ask me to come over and check out his local contest, Snow Jam. I thought about it for about a second, sure why not, it was that or the US Open. So we needed to bring an American ripper with so Lib Tech’s team manager, Jeannine James called up Allister Schultz, he said “Are you kidding me?”

Allister Schultz and I jumped on some planes and headed over to the Czech Republic for Martin Cernik’s Snowjam contest, just 3 hours north of Prague.

A little jet lagged, we killed some time in Prague before heading to the local mountains, Pec Pod Snezkou(Pets for short) Martin’s home mountain.

We met some of Czech Quiksilver crew in downtown Prague. Their office had a nice collection of Parillo art that I have never seen before.

Checked out this snowboard/skateboard shop, they only carried Lib Tech and Gnu snowboards!

Up in the Mountains, Pets they drive rad snow vehicles like this as taxis.

Here is the overview of the Snowjam, its a double kicker event.

This is the first year of the Snowjam a Ticket to Ride event(TTR), however Martin has been putting on big air events in his country for the last 5 years.

Time to go explore the Mountain, Martin shows us some stashes.
Allister, Martin and Henki Odegaard from Norway.

Found some pretty good tree runs with lots of pow and pillow stumps to jump off of. Allister getting some.

Our roommate Henki

Found these sweet pillows, shot a couple lines off them…

Allister slashed this big pillow…

He then blasted a huge method off another pillow.

Here is one of my favorite snow vehicles.
