Eight tons of snow coming to downtown Chattanooga

On Saturday, Feb. 7, from 2 to 6 p.m. Mellow Mushroom Chattanooga and Dodge City Ski will transform downtown Chattanooga from Aquarium Way to 3rd Street into a winter wonderland for the third installment of their annual event known as Chattanooga Rail Jam.

The street in front of the downtown Mellow Mushroom location will be covered in eight tons of snow to create a mini snowboarding park all to help raise money and awareness for Tennessee Riverkeeper.

The event will feature a snowboarding competition presented in part by Dodge City Ski, which will allow riders to vie for a chance at first, second and third place prizes across three divisions (men’s, women’s, and young adults’). The competition will be judged by representatives from Mellow Mushroom, event sponsors, and local celebrities.

Key features of the 2015 event include a DJ on Mellow’s patio, a hot beverage bar by Greyfriar’s serving coffee, tea and hot cider, the Mellow Bake Bus on site serving up hot slices, a craft beer truck provided by Budweiser of Chattanooga, and a Rail Jam Ale created by Big River. Both locations of Mellow Mushroom, both locations of Big River, and Easy Bistro will be selling Rail Jam Ale the week leading up to the big event. A portion of all Rail Jam Ale sales will benefit Tennessee Riverkeeper.

There will be an entrance fee of $5. Children 12 and under are free.
