Jams 4 Cans is a premier Inland Northwest rail jam series that offers progressive features for all competitors. This non-profit rail jam series is open to skiers and snowboarders who want to come together and raise awareness for local food banks. Over the past nine years the group has collected thousands of pounds of food and thousands of dollars.
The final event of the series is Jam 4 Cans Urban in Post Falls, Idaho, on March 30 from 6-10 p.m. at Summit Northwest Ministries. Members of the original riding crew from the inaugural event will make an appearance, including celebrity guest pro Noah Wallace. Riders and spectators alike will be eligible to win swag and gear from local sponsors like The Ski Shack, Spokane Alpine Haus, Pistole, and Shred Sports Outlet along with national sponsors like Liberty Skis, Phunkshun Wear, and REI.
Urban jams are very accessible to the general public and tend to draw a fun and boisterous crowd. Volunteers haul 100 yards of snow from Lookout Pass and bring in food, vendors, and bouncy houses for kids. There are also giant instant replay screens at indoor and outdoor viewing locations around the venue.
In 2018, the event collected 1,000 pounds of food at the Post Falls jam, and organizers are hoping to double their donations this year.
As the event gains moment, organizers are working on a documentary and hope to attract support from more sponsors as they share their story. They want to challenge a generation of skiers and snowboarders across the country to make a positive impact in their communities, as well as inspire progression and spread stoke.
