Under bluebird Colorado skies, local snowboarder John Hemminger took first place at Thanksjibbing in Snowmass Base Village. The invite-only rail jam consisted of a 45-minute jam session, followed by a 15-minute final with both skiers and snowboarders. The Aspen Snowmass terrain park crew created rails and other features, leaving the athletes endless opportunities to jib and compete for a $1000 prize purse.
