SKAGWAY & DYEA TRAILS
SKI CLUB – IT’S A WRAP!
Last day for Ski Club was Saturday March 27 at West Creek. Thanks to a grant from the municipality’s rec. center and other donations, we were able to contract with a program leader and kicked things off on January 9. We took participating kids out every Saturday and also after school on the two early release Thursdays every month. See this brochure for basic info: Ski Club Info . We hope to start a little earlier in the season next winter.
Thanks to everyone who helped, especially instructor Nicole Kovacs, our trail crew volunteers, and these awesome Ski Club Sponsors: Royal Caribbean Cruise Line, Municipality of Skagway Recreation Center and Log Cabin Ski Society with the support of Packer Expedition/Mountain Shop and Skagway School.
BUCKWHEAT COVID CLASSIC was Saturday March 6th! See details HERE about the fun event at Lower Dewey Lake. Thanks to TEMSCO for shuttle opportunities! Check out the photo gallery on Facebook!
LOG CABIN TRAILS (see map below)
The good news for winter 2020-21 was that we were allowed to transfer 2 of our snow machines at the border to Yukon volunteers Mike and Joel, and they groomed almost weekly from late December to early April. Here’s their latest report and check out photos/video on Facebook:
Reminder to all: the Log Cabin Ski Trails are designated for Cross-Country Skiing Only for the safety of everyone – no snow machines on trails please! The Log Cabin Ski Trails are part of Recreation Sites & Trails BC and are maintained by our Log Cabin Ski Society volunteers from Skagway and the Yukon. The parking lot is on Parks Canada land, and outhouses in the winter are maintained by LCSS (parks will maintain them this winter).
Here are the 2020-21 non-motorized weekends for the parking lot and Chilkoot Trail National Historic Site:
- December 25 to 27, 2020
