One wintertime event that has exploded with turnout these in recent years is the Winter 4×4 Jamboree in Hurricane, UT. The three day event held earlier this month brought out everything from full size trucks to Jeeps, custom comp buggies and everything in between to hit the trails and obstacles around the Sand Hollow State Park. With more than 600 rigs in attendance this year, the turnout nearly doubled last year’s attendance. With the dates set, we loaded up and heading to UT with sister company JKS Mfg to check out what this event is all about.
On day one we discovered that Sand Hollow has a great mixture of sand and rock, but we couldn’t resist our temptation to go get a little crazy in the dunes. After a great day of wheeling, we settled in at the vendor show to talk to all the attendees that were able to.
Day two started off with Bzzzzackwards. Even though the rain was relentless, we had a great time playing on the slick rock, and even got to play in the dunes a little more. The vendor show was crowded once again, and the food trucks showed up in hoards.
Day three tested our driving ability, as we followed the Dixie 4wd guys down Double Sammy. It was a technical trail from start to finish, but we made it through unscathed. The sun finally came out, and the views were amazing. Once again we were able to interact with tons of event attendees at the final night of the vendor show. Everyone enjoyed the BBQ, and settled in for the huge raffle that ended the event.
We would like to thank the Winter 4×4 Jamboree Committee, and the numerous volunteers that helped out from sun up to sun down. We’re looking forward to next year’s event! For more info head to http://www.winter4x4jamboree.com
