Skate skills will be put to the test this Sunday, June 12, as Showcase hosts the first of three Vans Community Skate Jam events of the season at the Whistler Skate Park.
The events are scheduled for June 12, July 10 and August 14 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. It's free to enter and open to all ages.
For each jam, the organizers select three features in the park. Whoever lands the best trick wins big. There is $1,000 in Vans and Showcase prizing at each event, plus $500 in cash prizes.
The athletes themselves judge the event by voting after every session. There will also be a Grom Class for riders aged 6 to 12.
And because you can get hungry after hours of riding, there's a hot dog barbecue at 4 p.m.
