Dollar Holler Rail Jam and Big Air
Saturday, March 11, 2023

The Dollar Holler Rail Jam took over Sun Valley Resort’s Dollar Mountain this past weekend, allowing  local kids and adults to strut their freestyle. For every stuck-landing there were dozens of falls, but competitors threw their best on the rails and in the Big Air challenge.

Youngsters sipping cocoa watched the event from plastic couches provided by Sun Valley Resort, even though snowy conditions made it difficult to see at times. And live music pumped up the adrenaline.

Among the participants was Joel Schneider-Farris. A Sun Valley ski instructor, he entered the competition on a whim. And his years of figure skating, playing hockey and jumping ramps for Disney on Ice appeared to pay off when he won a silver medal for his one-footed move on a very skinny rail.

“He did it with grace!” boasted his proud mother Jo Ann Schneider Farris.
