Canada’s coolest winter music festival
The Frostbite Music Society has decided to cancel the 2014 music festival, but plans to come back in 2015 with an amazing festival.
The Frostbite Music Festival got its start in 1979 when some folks got the crazy idea of bringing musicians to the Yukon in the dead of winter. Since then, Frostbite’s been chasing away the winter blues and bringing people together for a weekend of excellent music, sweaty dancing and community spirit. An intimate atmosphere and diverse array of local and national performers combine to make Frostbite the perfect place to connect with locals and experience northern hospitality at its best.
There are more than 2,000 glaciers in Kluane National Park. The Steele Glacier surged for several months in 1967, moving over 1.5 billion tons of ice at a rate of up to 15 metres (50 ft.) per day.
