Alyeska Snow Classic
The guessing has begun, and you could win cash! The official Alyeska Snow Classic measuring stick will be measured on Alyeska’s closing day, while guessing takes place March 1 – 31.

For more information, previous winning guesses and a sweet video, check out our website: www.alyeskasnowclassic.org.
The split the pot fundraiser benefits Four Valleys Community School, a locally operated 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization. For over 30years, FVCS has provided enriching community classes and events in Girdwood for people of all ages. Money raised through the Snow Classic will be used to supplement our program, making scholarships, rental fees, and operational aspects possible, ultimately keeping our program affordable.
Swimming with Suzy
Local youth who took the plunge in January to begin or revisit swimming with Suzy Knudsen soaked up their skills during their final week of lessons last week. Many kids were fortunate enough to have small group and semi-private lessons with an experienced and fun instructor. Thank you Suzy for teaching countless youth in the community and turning them into capable swimmers with a love for the water. Healthy lifestyle activities are available to FVCS through generous community members who take time to teach and coach our programs.
Slow Yoga rolls into another session this week for those ready to take their bodies through yoga in a gentle practice. Come drop in and try it during a week that works for you and learn what your body is missing out on. Strengthen your spine and connectivity on Wednesday mornings in the community room. Other classes for adults include Back on Track Tuesday evenings through the month of April. Lace up your running shoes and walk or run in the company of others, shed a layer and stay dry from any precipitation. Open gym games for adults continue Tuesday and Thursday evenings in the inviting, warm, dry gym. Was there an emphasis on dry? Grab a punch pass or drop in with your friends. Also, an adult indoor tennis clinic will be held April 14.
The Indoor Tennis clinic for youth begins early April: Tennis I on April 4 and Tennis II April 18. This clinic is exciting for Girdwood, as the tennis courts will be a brand-new place to play this summer. With all the looming construction ahead, playing in a safe fenced-in location sounds attractive. Visit fourvalleys.org for a complete list of classes for your kids.
