The middle (style) class, which was newly established this year, is open to those over 20 years old, and as the name suggests, only the style is competed at the discretion of the judge.It is very important to create such a class in order to value the most important style of snowboarding, not just the number of revolutions and the difficulty of the technique.
Day1 / Night_JIB class
AM JAM's first attempt at JIB class, commonly known as Amagib, will be held on the night of the first day.The battle stage was specially placed in front of the parking lot.With the cooperation of many volunteer staff, the normally flat barn changed to the JIB zone in less than an hour.Even though it was night, many spectators gathered and the fighting of the players was fought in a good atmosphere illuminated by the lights.
There were many hot participants who ran as hard as they could and returned to the starting position in order to show off as many of their usual slips as possible on this special stage.
Day2_JUMP open class
The next 10th is an open class in which a total of about 100 men and women participate. The second day was also an unexpectedly sunny day for the tournament.
