Saturday kicked off the 2nd annual Marquette Downtown Showdown rail jam. Snowboarders and skiers threw it down once again at the end of Washington Street. From young kids to seasoned veterans, these boys and girls had to be kicked off the hill before they gave up on their best slides, jibs, and whatever else the cool kids are calling them these days. This is one snowboarder who is out of touch with the current lingo. Maybe next year I’ll find the courage to strap on the ol’ board and see if I can hit a rail or two without breaking my face or knees.
It didn’t take long before the snow started to come down, making it a nice scene and adding to the layers of snow for this already epic winter.
