Kirkwood, Calif. — Kirkwood Mountain Resort will kick off its annual spring party, Jammà­n, for the 12th time on April 8th, 9th & 10th with more than 700 inches of snow to date this season - more snow than any resort in America - making the spring season at Kirkwood the best place to be on the continent.

The Jammà­n lineup on Saturday includes a Rail Jam at noon, a Big Air Competition at 1 pm, Pond-Skimming at 2 pm, a Bikini Race, Snow Volleyball, a Bungee Pull for prizes, karaoke and, of course, plenty of tanning and beers while DJs spin on the Plaza starting at 10 am on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. All events are free and open to the public. Participants are encouraged to go big, get wild and have a weekend worthy of Animal House.

Bring the cowboy hats for Western theme day on Friday and be sure to dig out the neon for retro day on Saturday. On Sunday, Kirkwood will sway to tropical breezes on Island theme day.

Other happenings around the mountain include a Spring Corn Camp on Saturday, April 9. The Camp includes 5 hours of on-mountain training, lunch and a video analysis (weather-permitting). Cost is $95 for pass holders, $120 for ticket holders.

Female skiers interested in improving their style and technique can join the Women's 1-day Camp for intermediate and expert skiers on Saturday, April 9. The camp includes 5 hours of on-mountain training, lunch and a video analysis (weather permitting). The cost is $95 for pass holders, $120 with a lift ticket.

Copeland's Super Sunday Rail Jam will feature a cash purse for both the professional class and the amateur class plus loads of prizes for everyone. Registration will be on the Plaza.
