Our cross country skiing tour offers a variety of cross country skiing experiences providing participants with a taste of the spectacular Yukon landscape in winter and the most fun you can have on two skiis!
Perhaps surprisingly, Canada’s Yukon boasts one of the country’s most avid cross country ski communities. Yukoners are passionate cross-country skiers and have developed several extensive community trail systems, each with a special character. Championship organizers at the highest levels have recognized the Yukon’s excellence and have awarded World Cup events in both cross country and biathlon, as well as the 2007 Canada Winter Games and 2010 Haywood Ski National Championships. These events have resulted in the development of several Olympic and National team cross country skiers and have attracted the attention of world class skiers.
Our tour is based in Whitehorse and communities a short distance outside the Yukon capital. The world class trail system of the Whitehorse Cross Country Ski Club at Mt. McIntyre is located just minutes from your downtown hotel. The trails are expertly groomed and offer many viewpoints of the beautiful surrounding mountains and valleys. Trails range in difficulty from beginner to advanced, to touring and racing.
Once you’ve got a feel for local conditions, we’ll travel just outside Whitehorse for a pleasant ski through the Yukon Wildlife Preserve and views of caribou, moose, elk, bison, musk-ox, mountain goats, Dall sheep, and even a lynx! An other day, we’ll travel to the stunning coastal ranges south of Whitehorse to ski the superb subalpine country in the White Pass.
After several days of fabulous skiing in the Whitehorse area, we will leave the groomed trails behind and head into the wild! One hour drive west of Whitehorse on the famous Alaska Highway brings us to a river confluence where we will begin skiing. Following the tracks of wild animals we will ski up the frozen Takhini River to a wilderness wall tent camp. You will experience first hand how frozen waterways provide routes of travel through the North.
Later we will continue west to Haines Junction, a village on the edge of a magnificent mountain range which contains Canada’s highest peak (Mt. Logan, 5920m) for 2 days of skiing in magnificent Kluane National Park; one of Canada’s most spectacular wilderness regions and home to world’s largest (non-polar) ice cap.
