Skiing

Enjoy your favourite kind of skiing – or try them all – because we have all the options and the terrain to back it up. Nordic skiers love our world-class cross-country ski trails. Downhillers can let it fly on Yukon's ski-lift hills, while backcountry skiers have endless snowy landscapes for alpine touring and carving turns.

Snowmobiling

Explore the Yukon in winter with a little extra power. Pack some ice fishing gear, grab some friends and you've got a dreamy day ahead – blasting across the snow like a pro, then chilling by the fishing hole with a hot drink and good company.

Snowshoeing

We love to share our passion for the wintry outdoors, and snowshoeing is a perfect introduction to the freedom found in winter sport. Strap on a pair of snowshoes and Yukon's snowy landscape becomes your personal playground.
