Log Cabin Cross Country Ski Trails

See map below: REMINDER these trails are for XC skiing only!!!

TRAIL REPORT: As we roll into race week we have excellent trail conditions at Log Cabin. It has been warming up during the afternoons but staying right around freezing. All trails have been packed and most have been groomed and tracked for this weekend. We could use some more volunteers to help trail crew do a little more cutting on the Boorman as we get it in race shape, and also as we launch into aid station construction for “Alice in Winterland.” Ski on out, get a few tips, and earn your volunteer shirt and a burger. Come on out to Log Cabin this weekend and all week if you can. Please sign up at: https://logcabinskisociety.volunteerlocal.com/volunteer

SKI CLUB LESSONS  –  Big Thanks to instructor Dan Reimer of Whitehorse who gave lessons to kids and adults on Feb. 17 and March 3. We will get him back next year. On March 16 and 17, when our Aid Station Build begins, plan to ski out and Steph can provide some instruction in exchange for a little “box packing.”

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 on BC Forestry land 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.  Here is a link to the 2018-2019 Winter Weekend Schedule from Parks Canada and an article about Winter Use in the Chilkoot Trail historic sites area.

Dyea Trails

It’s starting to feel like spring in Dyea. We’re still getting snow but very wet and the West Creek trails are disappearing. Head north to Log Cabin for the good snow!
