Cross Country Skiing and Snowshoeing

Cross country ski and snowshoe trail options are infinite

Leave the pistons at home and take in a Yukon winter adventure by snowshoe or cross-country skis. Route options are infinite; from numerous well marked and groomed trails to picking your own path along virgin snow. Yukon’s winter adventure operators can cater an experience to meet your needs and interests. Perhaps it’s an all-out alpine backcountry cross-country ski to a remote cabin on paths well trod by mountain caribou. Alternatively, it could be a strap on the snowshoes, after dessert and before the hot tub, meander just minutes from the luxury lodge.

Experience picture perfect postcard views

You’ve been meandering the magical winter forest trail and are about to crest the hill. Your guides have promised a picture perfect postcard view of the mountain valley and lakes below. With each step you catch a bit more of the alpenglow and mountain peaks until you are at the top, staring at an endless series of untouched frozen lakes framed in by towering spruce trees. The goose bumps you are feeling at this moment are even more rewarding, knowing that you’ve propelled yourself here, without a machine, but on your own two feet.

What were once tools for trappers, traders and hunters are now available for you to enhance your winter Yukon adventure. Bring your own gear or rent it all once you get here. With safety and comfort in mind your guides and winter adventure companies will outfit you well to make sure you enjoy the snow as much as they do.
