With the Burton US Open spectacle ending last weekend, it is now time for the women to shine at the decisive 6-Star Roxy Chicken Jam. The best and most progressive female snowboarders in the world are gathering at Mammoth Mountain, California, USA on March 28-30th 2008 for the final competition of the Womens TTR World Tour. In a Slopestyle and Superpipe grand finale, the Roxy Chicken Jam offers a 25% point bonus, giving a staggering 1250 points to each winner, ultimately crowning the womens TTR Tour Champion and dispersing $110 000 USD to the Womens TTR Top 5.

The championship battle will feature four exceptional snowboarders all going for number one in the Halfpipe, in an extremely close race with end results impossible to foresee. 06/07 Tour Champion Torah Bright (AUS) will attempt to hold her Tour Lead and claim her second successive TTR Tour Title, as she fends off her relentless adversaries, TTR World No. 2 Jamie Anderson (USA), TTR World No. 3 Kelly Clark (USA) and TTR World No. 4 Jenny Jones (GBR).

All four riders have been shuffling in the TTR Top 5 since the last Roxy Chicken Jam in Kaprun, Austria, each proving their worth, claiming numerous Title wins and never backing down. But their season long efforts all boil down to the final womens competition, as there are currently only 30 TTR ranking points between TTR No. 1 and No. 4, making this final bout incredibly tight.
In addition, with the TTR Top 5 Women earning portions of the TTR $110 000 USD prize purse, a handful of other strong riders will be clashing, looking for a highly coveted place within the TTR Top 5. Kjersti Oestgaard Buaas (NOR) will try and hold her TTR No. 5 position in the Halfpipe, as Sina Candrian (SUI), Ellery Hollingsworth (USA) and Cheryl Maas (NED) put forth their best to knock Kjersti from the Top 5. Alongside the invited riders, the event also holds thirty open spots in both Slopestyle and Halfpipe for riders looking to qualify their way to the top and challenge the champs. Of course things could change dramatically following the Halfpipe event, setting things up for an edge-of-your seat Slopestyle finale.

The 6-Star Roxy Chicken Jam offers up a $40 000 USD total prize purse for the Slopestyle and Superpipe competitions. To keep things fun, the all-womens event features a unique mascot contest, where riders must arrive fully decked out in a mascot costume and compete against the chicken in a Mascot Superpipe Contest. The winner takes home $4000 USD with another $1000 USD going to the best mascot costume of the day.
