Thanks to a huge effort by many volunteers, sponsors and supporters, the First Annual Mayhem in the Platzl was an incredible success.  Presented by The Choice and Commit, Mayhem in the Platzl packed in a large crowd like never before with an energy unparalleled, setting a great tone for future Mayhem.

The Choice’s team snowboarder  Anson won the First Annual Mayhem Rail Jam Cup. Stop by the Choice’s shop to see the cup, where it will be on display for the next year.

Tons of prizes were handed out thanks to the Choice, Commit, Kootenay Mountain Works, Teck,Chalet GM and My Signs.

Adam Laurin owner of Commit, was on hand for his outstanding announcing, as well as Ciaran Plant arrived for the singing of O’Canada.

King’s Cat General Contractor’s very skillful Bobcat operator Peter Hill helped move snow in creation and clean up of the rail jam.

Support also came from the Summit Fund, a community program run by Kimberley Alpine Resort, as well as Invest Kootenay, CBT, and Teck.  Mayhem was very lucky to have the expertise and hard work of Myc Pakula and Luke Meeds on site to design and build the course, especially during one of the busiest days of the year for the Resort.  John Haner, Lisa Smith and Nancy Ricketts on hand with First Aid was a huge contribution, and Cara Wiseman and her team setting up light and sound with Ray’s Music.

The City of Kimberley and Rockies Law Corporation’s in kind support was above and beyond.  From waivers to dump trucks full of snow, this event was made possible with their support.
