The 2011 Campus Rail Jam Tour stopped in Boulder on Thursday, March 4, making it a worthwhile excuse for students to skip their Physics or Calculus classes for the day and take in some shredding. As the Campus Rail Jam website says, “Boulder is overrun with shred talent,” and some serious stunts (and slams) went down on the hill during the day.
