The Afton Alps Pop Up Park takes over downtown St. Paul

There was a time in snowboarding when rail jams were commonplace. Riders could hit the circuit, city to city, state to state, and earn their income from the year just from the winnings. Those days may be gone, but Afton Alps is doing everything it can to keep this iconic format alive and well in Minnesota.

The Afton Alps Pop-Up Park is Afton’s take on the rail jam. Held during the Red Bull Crashed Ice, the resort took advantage of the throngs of people that descended on downtown St. Paul by bringing in select features from the resort’s terrain park for a little snowboarding in the streets. Drinks in hand, and probably a hefty portion of baked ziti from the iconic Italian eatery, Cossetta’s, people packed into West 7th Street to see some solid riding go down.
