|Leftover Yam Jam, Nov. 27|
The Leftover Yam Jam has become a holiday tradition of its own: The Thanksjibbing event is free, open to male and female professional and amateur snowboarders and skiers, and is a super fun and casual way to kick off the freestyle competition season (or just work out some kinks on the rails and burn off some holiday calories).
The prizes aren't huge, but they're better than you'll get if you spend the day in a tryptophan turkey coma or getting trampled by the teeming masses at Wal-Mart: Free snowboards and One Hit Wonder session passes courtesy of Woodward at Copper, Experience Copper Cards ($50, $25, and $20 for the top places in each division), and some Woodward swag hoodies, shirts, and other gear. And, in case you don't already have enough to be thankful for this week, the weekend forecast is predicting post-holiday snow in Summit County.
