“Safe Riding for Ryan”

To promote helmet safety awareness and safe riding, skiers and boarders are encouraged to compete in this very important and popular Terrain Park event to honor the memory of Ryan Lichtenberg.

HUGE SHOUT OUT to all our sponsors who have provided prizes for this year’s event — Rockstar, Burton, Giro Helmets and Optics, Maker, and Anon Helmets!

$20 Entry fee for each participant includes a Ryan Rail Jam bandana. Helmets, lift tickets and signed release forms are required for each participant. Print and sign the release agreement and registration forms (PDF) then bring them in with you the day of the event. All proceeds go to the Ryan Fund that helps increase helmet awareness and helps build new features for the park.

Registration will take place in The Clock Tower Lobby from 8:30-9:30am (promptly!)

Competition begins at 11:00!

The event will be a jam format in 3 sessions — Women & Juniors, Teens (14-17), and 18+. Each session will last 40 minutes. Prizes will be awarded to 1st & 2nd in each category with prizes also awarded to Biggest Cheerleader, Best Wipeout & Judge's Choice.

All details are subject to change, based on park & weather conditions.

Information about Ryan Lichtenberg and the Memorial Rail Jam

For those who aren’t familiar with the story, Ryan was a former employee and frequent park competitor, as well as a friend to many people here at the mountain. He passed away during the Fall of 2004 in Colorado due to a head injury sustained while snowboarding. His family wishes to continue to get the word out about safety and helmet usage, and we here at Liberty give our full support: Sunday the 21st of January marks our 13th Annual Memorial Rail Jam.

The family will be here supporting the event and the cause. All competitors in the event will get a “Safe Riding for Ryan” bandana for participating. We hope you can come support the event, the family, and the cause! Email events@skiliberty.com if you have any questions.

Please help Liberty and the family of Ryan Lichtenberg spread the word about this event!
