Hey everyone, so I’m sure you have heard by now, or seen the evidence on the webcam of something happening to the tripod today. While we were down checking on the Ice Classic shack, the tripod toppled right over! This did NOT trip the clock. The events are still ongoing, as the tripod has to move 100 yards downriver until it trips the clock and a winner is determined. Good luck everyone!
The Second Chance Ice Classic is sold out for 2017! We appreciate all the enthusiasm our fans expressed for this new round of fun while we wait for the river to break. Good luck to all the participants!
Starting Friday, April 28, a very limited run of Second Chance Ice Classic tickets will be available for purchase. The second chance tickets are completely separate from the original 2017 Ice Classic and there will only be 60 tickets available. Ticket pricing, dates of sale and rules are available here or at http://iceclassic.org/secondchance/.
The Kuskokwim Ice Classic jackpot for 2017 will be $12,500- the largest jackpot in recent history. The Ice Classic winner will earn all $12,500 or split the pot equally in the event of multiple winners. We look forward to an exciting 2017 season!
