Sunlight Mountain Resort’s terrain park will have a new addition for its final Rail Jam Competition Sunday

The Rainbow Rail, measuring 40 feet long and 6 feet high, was pulled up the mountain by a snowcat to the jib park Tuesday evening to cheers from onlookers at the Day Lodge.

At 5:30 a.m. Wednesday morning, terrain park manager Jeremy Wussow and snowboard instructor Darin Binion were on the hill in the dark with head lamps preparing the approach. It’s an expert only rail, a double black and “it’s big,” said Jeremy Wussow.

Also in the works, is the snow park above the Tercero lift, which will have a variety of snow features.

Sunday is the final Rail Jam Competition. Snowriders will be judged on their technical levels, style and finesse. The competition begins at 1 p.m. in Sunlight’s Snowpark and helmets are required. Prizes include snowboards, bindings and T-shirts.
