Sled Shed owner Joe Hill says, “The goal of this event is to get kids stoked to shred.”

Hill said he’s very grateful that Sled Shed is celebrating 17 years of holding the Rail Jam.

“It’s crazy to me that this event is now old enough to have been around longer than many of its potential participants,” he says.

Hill said the competition is a labor of love that simultaneously supports many other shred-minded local businesses.

“We truck in shaved ice provided by Idaho Falls ice rink, we close off Main St, and drop in off the top of a potato truck into Smith Park and onto 3 different features/rails/boxes,” Hill says. “It’s true to our Idaho heritage and it’s always a good time!”

The day of the event, Redd’s Grill will have a food trailer present for competitors and audience members to pick up some delicious burgers, fries, hot cocoa, and more.
