KFC threw a rail jam in the middle of the Snowtunes musical festival over the weekend. For its second consecutive year, this invite-only rail contest is making plenty of noise within the Australian snowboarding industry. With a hefty prize pool of $20,000 and unlimited buckets of the Colonel's secret recipe, the night saw plenty of heavy hitters battle it out in front a hyped up crowd. This year's field was stacked with local rippers and some of the world’s most talented snowboarders including Darcy Sharpe and Anthon Bosch. Designed and built by legendary park builder Charles Beckinsale, this year's course featured four distinct rails. The two setup rails included a kink and a down rail which then followed into a flat-down and high flat rail. 

We're in the process of bringing you a full recap video of what went down at this year's jam. In the meantime, check out the full results and photos below...
