Dyea Trails

Got about 2 inches of new snow in early February. It’s skiable but still pretty icy and slick underneath. Use caution. Park at West Creek bridge and ski over.  Right fork will take you to the river trails. You’ll be self-tracking most of the way over a pretty solid, icy base. Watch for overflow close to river.

 For updated trails information, you may also call The Mountain Shop in Skagway at 907-983-2544.
