“A downhill course that can make a Ski Racer’s carrer, or break it”
For 75 years, the annual Hahnenkamm race in Kitzbühel, Austria, has produced unforgettable triumphs and heartrending tragedies, a heritage that is full of myths and legends. Nowhere else is skiing celebrated so intensely. The city, the nation, and the entire winter sports world go crazy for the battles that play out on the slopes, and the race down the Streif is the most anticipated event of all – the Superbowl of skiing. “Streif – One Hell of a Ride” vividly shares this momentous occasion, plus everything done in preparation.
*Proceeds benefit USSA Alaska Alpine Division and UAA Skiing – collectively and informally known as “Alaska Skiing”.
GA $15 – All tickets including booths will go on sale Tuesday, January 3rd at 10:30 am onlie and at the Bear Tooth Box-office!

WELCOME TO 2016/17 SEASON | REGISTRATION, NEWS, EVENTS …
It’s been a busy summer for the staff and volunteers engaged in summer programming and operations of the Alyeska Ski Club and we are ready for the 2016/17 season!
In July we announced to the membership the hiring of Alpine Director, Scott Zahn. Scott is currently wrapping up his personal and professional obligations as the Program/Technical Director for the Nakiska Alpine Ski Association in Calgary and will be joining ASC on October 1.
With only a couple of coaching positions remaining to fill, Scott will be supported by both new and returning staff and volunteer coaches. Look for staff announcements, bios and contact information on the website this month.
Mary Thomas, CPA, also joined ASC’s administrative team on August 15. Mary’s accounting and non-profit experience has already proven to be of tremendous value, as she takes over the ASC Bookkeeping and Office Management duties.
And, finally, we’d like to announce the hiring of Peggy Finnegan as our new Devos Program Director. Peggy has been involved with the Alyeska Ski Club for 12 years as a parent and for the past 7 years as a coach for Devos. She has been working for 30+ years with youth in outdoor environmental education and early childhood education. Peggy is extremely passionate about the Devos program and is going to bring a wealth of experience and enthusiasm to the position.
