New Year's Eve Celebration at Whitefish Mountain Resort
Rail Jam, Torchlight Parade and Fireworks

Up to 60 skiers and snowboarders will hit rails and boxes on a custom built rail jam venue. It’s super fun to watch and even more fun to compete in. Riders compete for a $1,000 cash purse in Open Class Skier & Open Class Snowboarder categories, plus there are prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in Amateur categories, and a raffle for all competitors.

After the Rail Jam, join us for a Torchlight Parade and Fireworks at 6:30 PM at the bottom of Ed’s Run.

Register for the torchlight parade at the bottom of Chair 2 – Swift Creek Express by 5:45 pm. You must be an intermediate or expert skier or snowboarder to participate and have low-visibility goggles.

Brent Jameson and the Sordid Seeds play at Ed & Mully’s from 6:45 – 10pm, and you can end your night at The Bierstube with live music from 9:30pm – midnight.
