Telapalooza set to kick off this weekend

Alyeska ski resort in Girdwood is hosting the fifth annual Telepalooza festival this weekend. The event began as a memorial to Jeff Nissman a skilled tele skier and U-S forest service worker who died under an avalanche that fell off the building where he was working. This year, the festival is home to the first ever world telemark free-skiing championships.
