For the 2012 West Coast Invitational Mammoth shifted gears in a BIG way. For 10 years straight the WCI showcase event was a Snowboard Rail Jam at the Village. The powers-that-be decided it was time for a change… And, despite a markedly low snow year, Mammoth forged ahead with plans to move the excitement of WCI from the Village to Canyon Lodge.

A Village Rail Jam would forego something totally new for WCI – a skier/snowboarder paired team Big Air Comp at Canyon Lodge. No snow at Canyon Lodge? No problem… Actually, more like BIG problem. A team of snowcats worked day and night to push a tremendous amount of snow from the lower slopes of Lincoln Mountain all the way down to Canyon Lodge.

The result? 1) A beautifully constructed 70-foot (90 to the sweet spot), true table, channel gap jump. 2) A spectacular display of top-caliber ski & snowboard talent under the prime-time lights – see video above for a sampling of the action that went down.
