Louie Vito, back home

Posted: Updated:

Bellefontaine's favorite son Louie Vito, back home for the annual Rail Jam at Mad River Mountain.

The U.S. Olympic team snowboarder and former contestant on "Dancing with the Stars" took time to meet with his fans in The Loft, signing autographs for more than three hours.

The Rail Jam attracts snowboarders from all over the tri-state region.

The event is also a fundraiser for an area food pantry.

Vito says he was happy to be back where he first learned to snowboard.

Vito recently finished second in The Dew Tour in Colorado and is preparing for the upcoming snowboarding season.
