Rails and Ales is just a few days away! Get ready for an epic evening of skiing, snowboarding, music and fun in the heart of Wenatchee on Friday, March 10 at 5 p.m.

Mission Ridge Ski +Board Resort trucks snow down from the mountain and builds a rail jam course on Orondo Avenue for this annual rail jam contest and celebration of winter sports. Some of the best skiers and snowboarders in the Pacific Northwest throw down in the contest, free and open to the public. The competition draws entries from all over the region, with winners receiving up to $1,000 in cash prizes.

Rails and Ales is also fully equipped with two beer gardens pouring brews from local breweries, including Badger Mountain Brewing and Wenatchee Valley Brewing. Food trucks Blue Skies Food Shack, Dooley Dogs, R-Shack BBQ, and Geno's Kettle Korn will be serving up delicious bites and Seattle-based band Massy Ferguson is serving up rock-country tunes they describe as “amplified Americana” until 10 p.m.

Rails and Ales is family-friendly, but the beer gardens are 21+. The event location is 1 Orondo Avenue, Wenatchee, WA 98801, on Orondo Avenue between Wenatchee Avenue down to the train tracks near Pybus Market. Learn more here.
