The last European stop of the Volcom Peanut Butter & Rail Jam 2015 went down last weekend in the resort of Les 2 Alpes, France, and it was a banger! Despite the poor snow conditions at the bottom of the slopes and the rain that started in the afternoon, the snowpark crew kept their setup in shape and the riders and audience stayed super motivated. Local shredders were stoked and many others made the trip from Grenoble, Alpe d’Huez, Vars, La Clusaz and Spain.

Each jam went down with solid tricks on the somewhat basic setup, so judges were looking for tech, originality and style. At the end of the day, winners got crowned, prizes and cash given, and everybody went home with some products. What would be Les 2 Alpes without an afterparty at Smithys and L’Avalanche? You tell me…Thanks to Nitro Snowboards, Union Bindings, future mayor Yannick Amevet, Act Snowboard Mag, Fluofun, Bangin Bees, 2 Alpes Tourism Office, Rusty Toothbrush crew, Boris, Franck Moissonnier, Alex Pethicaca and Nick “Ladiesman” Ward and everybody who came to enjoy the day with us. Giacomo Errichiello get well soon!

Giaccomo “Jack” Errichiello took one of the gnarliest slams I’ve seen, trying a bs 360 transfer on the kinked box. He walked away directly to the hospital after a 5 min black out with some missing teeth, we all wish you a quick recovery!
