Traveling ski and snowboard competition highlights USU E-Week

Imagine skiing down a three-story snow-covered structure then sliding down a rail to catch air and pulling off an impressive stunt without ever leaving campus. Using such an approach to call attention to E-Week may be unusual but the Utah State University Entrepreneur Club, which prides itself on innovative thinking, is doing just that. The Campus Rail Jam Tour, a traveling ski and snowboard competition, is part of the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business second annual E-Week, or Entrepreneur Week, April 5 through April 9. New this year is a large temporary structure to be built next to the George S. Eccles Business Building and then covered with 25 tons of snow, allowing participants to compete and show off their ski and snowboarding skills without traveling up the canyon.
