The river ice is melting; spring is warming; and the Kuskokwim Ice Classic is doing something new this year.
It’s sold its usual tickets where people guess the exact date and time the ice will break up. Now, it’s selling 60 additional tickets that are separate from the Ice Classic pot. Each ticket represents one minute in an hour. So if you buy minute 10, and the ice breaks at 2:10 p.m., you win.
