2019 Ice Classic Sales are OPEN! $12,500 Jackpot!

We are pleased to announce that 2019 Ice Classic tickets are now on sale! We look forward to another exciting Kusko Ice Classic season and thank all of our customers for participating. Through your Ice Classic purchases, you are supporting nine different groups around the YK Delta that are fundraising to support their activities.

Permanent Sales Locations: You can purchase tickets at:

  • Swanson’s Customer Service
  • YK Fitness Center
  • VFW
  • Fili’s Pizza
  • Kuskokwim Consortium Library
  • BCSF

Bethel Ticket Sales Groups: Bethel groups will soon be selling tickets at AC every week day during the hours of 11am-3pm, and 5pm-7pm, with in-person sales at Swanson’s soon to follow. The Bethel groups selling Ice Classic tickets to raise money for their activities are: YK Delta Lifesavers, Bethel Friends of Canines, Delta Illusion Dance Company, KuC Student Government and Teens Acting Against Violence.

Phone Sales: Phone sales are open! Call 907-545-8483 to purchase your Ice Classic Tickets over the phone.

In-Person Sales in Other Communities: In-person sales can also be made in Aniak (contact Jenny Nicoli with Aniak Yuraq Group), Emmonak (contact Amber Hootch or Robin Kozevnikoff with Emmonak Search and Rescue), Napaskiak (contact Mariah Rens or Eric James with the Napaskiak Senior Class), and Kwigillingok (contact Crystal Johnson with the Kwig Senior Class).

Deadline: Guesses are due by Monday, April 22nd at 7 pm. Due to the unusually warm winter, the Kusko Ice Classic committee would like our fans to pay special attention to the rule that explains the process we will use if breakup happens on or before Monday, April 22 at 7 pm. If an early breakup should occur on or before April 22, 2019 at 7 pm, guesses must be submitted no later than the day before breakup occurs in order to be eligible to win. We will collect and separate guesses submitted at the end of the day each day if it appears that breakup may happen before the submission deadline date. Customers who choose to purchase tickets and wait to turn them in should be aware of weather conditions and the dropbox locations where tickets may be returned, as well as the business hours that allow accessibility to those dropbox locations, to ensure eligible guesses are entered in compliance with this rule.

Ticket Prices: Tickets are $5 for one, or $20 for a book of five, which will give you a chance at winning a $12,500 jackpot again this year!

Tripod: The 2019 tripod, constructed by Eric Whitney based on a design by LKSD STEM students, was recovered last year! The tripod was placed on the river in front of FNBA in February.  Go check it out sometime, and remember to keep an eye on the river conditions!

Dropbox Locations in Bethel: Some customers purchase guesses and choose to submit them later. Dropbox locations can be found at:

  • RAVN
  • AC Customer Service Desk
  • Swanson’s Customer Service
  • YK Fitness Center
  • VFW
  • Fili’s Pizza
  • BCSF

Please read the rule written above about early breakup and be mindful of the weather and the hours of the businesses that have dropboxes. We don’t want customers who purchased guesses to miss their chance to turn them in!
