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.

    Can I Mush

    Banner Photos: 

    We provide athletics and private dog-sledding tours. With a maximum of two participants at a time, we ensure exclusive experiences.

    You drive your own dog team on bush trails meandering the boreal forest. You may have to push (run) uphill and keep your balance downhill while braking with one of your feet. This is not for the arm-chair musher travellers but more for the adventure spirited persons.

    We believe in engaging dog-sledding experiences that are built on trust and respect between Musher and Dog. Be aware dog-mushing is addictive!
