Mountain Updates:

Mother Nature sure came through and left her mark! Gear up today Alyeska Fans, as we have 14" of fresh snow up top and 12" of new snow midway for all to play in! The top of the mountain was unable to open yesterday due to high winds, so you have over a foot of untouched powder to play in. Due note that wind gusts did reach up to 40mph yesterday, so there will definitely be some wind-drifts, but all-in-all I think today will restore our faith in Winter! Come on out and join us in winter wonderland and see if it's possible to wipe that smile off your face when you are done!



The Inside Line:

The last few weeks of the Discover Skiing and Snowboarding Programs so be sure to get your child signed up! The Discover Program consists of three group lessons held on three consecutive Saturdays or Sundays. The day begins with a two hour group lesson with a break for lunch, followed by an afternoon of unchaperoned free skiing. There are also options if you would like to continue the lesson into the afternoon. The last Block will be March 21st, 28th, and April 4th. This is a GREAT program for kids 8-17, skiers or snowboarders, Upper Mountain and Lower Mountain Option, and also includes transportation from Anchorage and Eagle River. This is a great opportunity to get your kids out on the slopes, even if you can't make it to join them. Please call the Mountain Learning Center at 754-2280 or visit the website for more information.



Apres Ski:

Tonight won't just be your normal Trivia Tuesday at the Sitzmark... we're not JUST giving away a $100 gift card to the winning team, we're not JUST dressing up for St. Patty's Day and drinking Green Beer, we're not JUST pretending to be Irish for a day, but we're also pairing up with Jameson to GIVE AWAY 30,000 ALASKA AIRLINES MILES!!!

Other Info:

We've got some pretty great concerts coming up at the Sitzmark this Spring, so why drive all the way back to Anchorage after you're done dancing the night away?!
