Play five-card stud poker for a chance to win and learn. This is not your typical poker run. Players travel to five stations to learn and practice safe backcountry skills in exchange for a pok- er number. The player with the highest hand will split the cash pot and be entered to win prizes contributed by such sponsors as Klim, Team CC, Black Diamond, Eagle River Polaris Arctic Cat and more.

If you register to play the Arctic Man Pea Pod Poker Chal- lenge in advance at www.alaskasnow.org you’ll get a poker chip redeemable for your game card plus be automatically entered to win the grand prize package.

Anyone can play the game but you must register online to qualify to play for free and be entered to win the grand prize. Bring your family, friends and adventure partners and make your backcountry travel experiences fun and safe.
