Mellow Mushroom Waterside and Dodge City Ski are bringing back their annual snowboard competition that was attended by over 1,000 people, Chattanooga Rail Jam, for a second year on Saturday, Jan. 25. Six tons of snow will transform the gourmet pizza restaurant's parking lot into a wintry wonderland to raise money and awareness for Tennessee Riverkeeper.
For those willing to brave the flurries, Mellow Mushroom’s Waterside location, 2318 Lifestyle Way, will be decked out with a snowboard park, snowfall, and live music from DJ Scuba Steve. A snowboarding competition will also be held for guests who like to shred the snow and want to compete for prizes.
The snowboard competition will be divided into three categories: men, women and youth (12-16 years old). All participants will be competing for a Mellow Mushroom prize pack, Dodge City Ski prize pack, a snowboard, and more. Winners will be determined from a judging panel of local celebrities.
Admission is free, however guests are encouraged to make a $5 donation to Tennessee Riverkeeper. Each person that donates will receive a voucher for a complimentary draft beer, cocktail, or for underage guests, a free slice of Mellow Mushroom pizza from the Bake Bus.
The event will also showcase a craft beer bar from Budweiser of Chattanooga, a whiskey bar from Jack Daniels and Chattanooga Whiskey, a Three Olives vodka bar, and a wine sampling garden from Gnarly Head Wines.
Doors open at 4 p.m. and the snowboard competition will start at 6 p.m. at Mellow Mushroom Waterside.
