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.

  • Annual Crane and Sheep Festival

    Banner Photos: 

    "Each spring Sandhill Cranes fly back to their nesting grounds in the northern regions of North America and north eastern Siberia. They use the thermals over Faro as their elevator to gain altitude. In their migration flights, the Sandhill Crane will fly in long lines or in Vs. They make a loud garoo-oo-a-a-a type of call when they fly which can be heard more than 1.6 km (1 mile) away. This means it is likely you will hear them long before you actual see them in flight.
