Schedule Update & Technical Difficulties

Greetings from slushy Talkeetna!
Alaska might be one of the few places where they cancel school on account of rain. Today is day three of school being closed due to treacherous road conditions. People and pets have been cooped up and starting to suffer from Cabin Fever! The weatherman is calling for snow tomorrow, but with slush and big puddles everywhere, folks are not too excited about that.

The ski trails were in great condition! Last Saturday, there was a "Wooden Ski" Classic that about a dozen community members participated in. Retro attire was encouraged! Wool sweaters, knickers, skirts, wooden skis, snowshoes and fur mittens were all seen that day. The group skied about 2 hours in fairly deep, fresh snow, making a long loop around town, along the River Trail and the Swamp Trail (by Twister Creek) starting and ending at the Talkeetna Roadhouse. The temp was 5 to 10 degrees above zero, the sun was out and it was beautiful.

So, here is the good news - enrollments are looking good!
We are receiving emails, faxes and phone calls every day for all sorts of programs.
