The Nenana Ice Classic



What is the Nenana Ice Classic?

The Ice Classic is Alaska's greatest guessing game! 

In Nenana during1917 a group of engineers surveying for the Alaska Railroad bet $800 putting in their guesses when the river would break up. This fun little guessing game has turned into an incredible tradition that has now continued for over 106 years! 

Buy a $3.00 ticket to be involved in this long running Alaskan tradition. 

Good luck!
