Powder & Rails: The Nixon Jib Fest Part 1/3

For three episodes, The 2011 Nixon JibFest will be the focus of Vice.com’s snow series Powder & Rails. The first installment of the show will take a look back at the history of jibbing and specifically Nixon’s JibFest, which began in 2000 at the urging of jib pioneers and Nixon team riders JP Walker, Jeremy Jones and Dave Downing.

After an eight-year hiatus The Nixon JibFest resurfaced at Northstar-at-Tahoe during the spring of 2011 and Powder & Rails was on-hand to capture it all. Watch as Powder & Rails jumps back to the early 90’s and talks to some of the riders who began the jibbing revolution. This installment of Nixon’s JibFest brings together three generations of snowboarders who have all influenced each other on the biggest custom courses that have ever been built.

Episode two of the series will launch Tuesday, October 18 and will conclude with the third episode on Tuesday, October 25.
