For the past three years the Tyler Davis Hip Jam has provided the impetus for the construction of a stomach-lurcher of a hip at Gunstock Mountain Resort in NH. This year the abnormally warm temps that have been afflicting the East Coast throughout the winter enhanced the hip jam, softening the snow to a pillowy mush that invited competitors to start 10 feet higher and ignore all inclinations to pump the brakes. Jed Sky, Merrick Joyce, Parker Szumowski, River Richer and more NH heavyweights did the hip justice, maxing out the bad larry for the entire contest.
