The 5th stop of the Peanut Butter and Rail Jam tour went bananas at Keystone, CO on January 26, 2013!











Mixing it up, we decided to drop in a little early this season at Keystone Resort in

Colorado, instead of the usual late spring round-up. Not only that, we moved the

contest site from the main park area to Mountain House base area, where the A51

park crew provided a stellar set-up and attentive grooming throughout the

contest- thanks guys! Zones from left to right: tilted-up A-frame tube, barriers

with chain closing off down barrel and down flat down square rail, all of which saw

a quiver of action this weekend. Enjoying the balmy conditions during this mid-

winter stop, the snow was forgiving and made for a great day of contest riding!






















The View From The Contest Drop In





If humans are part-animal, this age group proved it. Getting wild and pulling

through with all sorts of trickery, these kids showed their passion and provided an

exciting glimpse of snowboarding’s future. Tyler Kulich, from Maine, laying down

work suitable for Open and 16+ divisions, swooped in for 1st place. Volcom team

rider and 13-year-old, Cody Warble from Edwards secured the 2nd place slot, while

12-year-old, Red Gerard from Frisco, Colorado claimed 3rd.

Where boys turn to men- the 16 and over division is the proving grounds for many

amateur riders looking to make serious advances, with plenty of throw down to go

around. All seriousness aside, these guys made sure to blend in some fun as they

tore through all three features. Matt Gencarella charmed his way into the 1st place

slot with his committed and well-executed style... or was it the original quilt vest

Matt rocked with confidence that captivated the judges? Working his way up from

18th place in the qualifying rounds to finishing 2nd place, Kyle Seyedian from

nearby Fort Collins, Colorado focused in and earned his keep, perhaps by way of

the fancy footwork he demonstrated off the A-frame feature. Showing pure

dedication to the Volcom PBRJ contest tour, Kyle Kennedy, driving all the way from

Forest Lake, Minnesota went home with the 3rd place seating.

The girls were out in full force at Keystone, some of the most competitive girls

riding we have seen on the tour this year. Not only competitive, but highly technical

and clean- yah girls! It was a great show to watch with many of the usual heavy

hitters showing up, as well as some new faces, including entrants (and winners)

from as far as Japan and Sweden. Sisi Cavretti from Sweden claimed 1st place,

inserting an impressive board-slide pretzel out in the qualifying round, followed by

Morgan Anderson from Colorado in 2nd and Fuko Michihata from Japan taking 3rd,

who consistently worked the down flat down rail. Hard-working Volcom rider and

Breckenridge local, Courtney Cox, utilized every last second on the clock to grab

the 4th place seat.

Stoking the crowd with a tight competition, this division doesn’t mess around, and

this weekend saw no exception. It was a epic battle and the big dogs were gunning

for the those coveted championship invites. Continuing with the international flavor

of the Keystone event, Julien Beaulien from Quebec clenched 1st, followed by Kris

Hantz from Breckenridge in 2nd place. Alex Roy Martin from Michigan picked up

3rd, as well as revealed a contending trick for “gooeyest move.” Griping the 4th

spot in the Open Division, was Ezra Racine from Vermont.
