Georgian College’s annual student-run, ski and snowboard slide jam – Jibfest 2016 – returns to the Barrie Campus on Saturday, Oct. 29.
Riders from across Ontario will converge at JibFest 2016 to showcase their talents in preparation for the upcoming season. Participants compete for prizes as they demonstrate their biggest and most stylish tricks.
Georgian’s Snow Resort Operations students fundraise, manage, and run the entire competition as part of their curriculum.
“JibFest is the original grassroots rail jam,” says Snow Resort Operations graduate Alex Mattie. “It was all about fun when it started in 2000 and that’s our focus for Jibfest 2016, whether you’re coming to compete, just to ride or to dress up and watch.”
Jibfest 2016 takes place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The entry fee for riders is $40. A barbeque lunch and refreshments will be provided.
Registration information can be found on Jibfest 2016 on Facebook.
