Shredtoberfest 2012

Two of Cannonsburg’s riders hanging out Friday night

October 26-27 was Shredtoberfest 2012. This was our second year having a pre-season event, but our first year hosting a pre-season rail jam. Friday night, a ton of people came out to watch amazing ski/snowboard videos, drink beer, and my favorite… watch some familiar Cannonsburg faces rocking some tribal hair/makeup. It was so great to see the lodge filled with people who are just as excited about winter as us.

This didn’t prepare us for Saturday.

We watched the numbers for the event skyrocket on Facebook. We were stoked on 50, which became 200, and by the day of the event we were at 650. We’ve never had as much pre-hype for an event as we did Shredtoberfest. Participants for the Tricks for Treats Rail Jam were lined up before the event even began! We estimate nearly 1,000 people made it out the event. We’re happy to call it a success, and cannot wait for next season.
