K.S.A. COVID-19 Update
04 April 2020 – Klondike Snowmobile Association
The Klondike Snowmobile Association’s Board of Directors continues to monitor the fast changing COVID-19 pandemic for changes and updates that may affect our membership.
In an effort to help reduce the potential spread of COVID-19 the Klondike Snowmobile Association has cancelled our April board meeting. We are still available by e-mail, phone and social media for any inquiries.
Sport Yukon remains closed due to COVID-19 concerns, and as a result the Klondike Snowmobile Association will continue to have very limited access to our regular mail and drop offs. If you would like to contact us or have something for us please contact us by e-mail, phone or social media.
Klondike Snowmobile Association memberships and membership renewals are still available, however for now we are asking everyone to please use the on-line membership form and e-transfer payment option only, as this helps reduce potential exposure for our volunteers and also we currently have very limited access to our regular mail and drop offs due to Sport Yukon being closed.
We encourage everyone to enjoy snowmobiling while they still can as the snow season begins to fade. Please keep in mind however that all recommendations regarding hand cleaning and physical distancing should still be followed. Also, with our healthcare system already overwhelmed by the pandemic, every effort should be made to avoid any snowmobiling injuries by reducing your risk levels by as much as possible.
Also, although spring is a great time to ride in many places throughout the Yukon, it is recommended that this season you stick to relatively nearby areas and avoid travelling to or through other Yukon communities to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.
Several local businesses around the Yukon including some snowmobile dealers are currently closed to walk-in customers, but are still open for business by phone, e-mail, social media, etc, so please check with each business for their current hours and methods of operation. Locals can really use your business in these difficult times, so remember to support your local sources of snowmobiles, parts, accessories, gas, etc.
Please also remember to follow all recommended precautions including frequent hand washing and physical distancing when supporting our local businesses, and if you are sick or have possibly been exposed in any way you really should stay home for your full 14 day self isolation period.
Parks Canada sites, including the Chilkoot Trail National Historic Site and the Log Cabin parking lot, remain closed to public access at this time in an effort to help encourage people to stay home.
Please stay safe out there and remember to do your part during this pandemic by washing your hands all day long, stay one moose length apart at all times, and self-isolate if there is any chance you might have it.
