Alyeska Snow Classic Tickets On Sale Feb. 15th!

Girdwood, AK, Friday February 15, 2013Four Valleys Community School is pleased to announce that it will be conducting its first Alyeska Snow Classic.  Ticket sales will begin on Feb. 15th and continue until March 31st midnight.

The Alyeska Snow Classic will operate similar to the Nenana Ice Classic. Rather than predicting when the ice will break, Alyeska Snow Classic players will guess the depth of snow on Mount Alyeska. Contestants will guess the snow depth in feet and tenths and hundredths of a foot.  Measurement will take place on April 28, 2013. Contest participants purchase ticket(s) priced at $2.50 each and enter their guess(es) into a Alyeska Snow Classic container. 50% of monies raised will support FVCS and the remaining 50% will be distributed to the winner(s).
