Winter

Winter the way it's supposed to be

Breathe in the crisp, cool air. Feel the snow crunch beneath your feet. All around you the mountains and trees sparkle under a bright blue sky. This is winter in the Yukon, and the possibilities are endless.

Dogsledding

Experience winter travel in its purest form and discover the joyful sport of dogsledding. Bond with half a dozen furry friends, and feel the adrenaline rush of being pulled by your enthusiastic team of huskies. Choose from half-day outings to multi-day wilderness adventures.

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.

Visit yukonhiking.ca for information on self-guided skiing in the Yukon.  

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.

Cathers Wilderness Adventures

Cathers Wilderness Adventures is a two-generation family business offering year-round wilderness experiences.

In winter, we welcome guests for dog sledding. In summer, we offer cabin-based stays (with guided day activities) at our wilderness home on Lake Laberge, as well as camping trips: hiking and backpacking supported by pack dogs, and canoe or boat camping along the historic Yukon River.

Located 30 miles (50 km) north of Whitehorse, there is no road to our shore of the lake. Access to our home and cabins is by dog team or snow machine in winter and by boat or canoe in summer. Our trips focus on small groups or individuals and are personally guided by our family. Our experience includes 30 years living year-round in this spectacular location, guiding since the mid-1970’s, and thousands of miles of travel in the Yukon wilderness - camping, guiding, sled dog racing, and hauling supplies to our home.

We customize trips for individual interests and
