Alyeska’s Spring Carnival Heralds End of Season

A

laskans ready for spring skiing and light-spirited antics will head for Alyeska Resort’s longtime Spring Carnival this month. This year’s Spring Carnival is set for April 20-22. The weekend includes the Slush Cup, an event requiring costumed skiers to ski or snowboard down a short run to skim the length of a 90-foot-long pond. The winner will receive an Alyeska Resort season pass. The competition is limited to 50 participants. Last year KWHL radio personalities Bob Lester and Mark Colavecchio judged a costume contest to choose 20 of the Slush Cup participants, said Amy Quesenberry, Alyeska’s marketing manager. The costume contest, popular in its debut, will return this year. The costume contest is on Friday, a prelude to the Saturday Slush Cup. On Sunday, participants launch their decorated mannequins down the Tanaka trail for the Dummy Downhill. The Tug of War, also on Sunday, features five-person teams facing off across the Alyeska Resort pond. Other Spring Carnival events include live music Friday and Saturday evenings at the Sitzmark. “We are really excited about Spring Carnival this year and looking for it to be the best one yet,” said event organizer Jen Davies. Due to Southcentral Alaska’s abundant snowfall this winter, crews were pushing snow toward the slush pond area by mid-February, she noted. For more information, visit www.alyeskaresort.com. •••
