The “Ithaca Skate Jam” is back for year 4. Come join us on Saturday May 9, 2015 from 9 AM to 6 PM in Ithaca, NY for a downhill skate jam. The Ithaca Skate Jam is sanctioned & permitted by the City of Ithaca.
The event is returning to the buttery smooth pavement of Buffalo Street and we are additionally closing Quarry Street for downhill skatepark that the Comet team will build for you. This will give us even more skate able terrain than last year.

You don't need a corporate sponsor or fancy gear. Both Amateur Level and Pro Level skaters will be skating the same hill all day. Simply Shred. We are keeping the event super simple. Grab your board and take as many runs as you like. The hill is steep and we're filling it with shred-worthy goodness. We look at this hill every day and wish there were no cars on it. Now we have two hills to skate. On May 9 that will come true and we are stoked to skate it with you and all of the features we're going to build.
