  • Please report trail conditions to 867 667 7680 or
    The trail conditions listed above are only as up to date as riders like you help us make them. We rely heavily on updates we receive from K.S.A. members and the general public.
  • Respect all trail users…
    The vast majority of the trails in the Yukon are considered “multi-use”.  This means they are open to snowmobiles, skis, dog sleds, ATVs, bikes, hikers, horses, and everything in between.  Please respect all the user groups, and slow down and give extra room when passing others on the trails.
  • Wheeled vehicles are not allowed on any of the multi-use trails from November 1st through March 31st each year…  Includes (but not limited to) cars, trucks, wheeled ATVs and wheeled side by sides.  All it takes is one wheeled vehicle to shred a trail’s snow base and ruin it for everyone else.  If you see a wheeled vehicle on a multi-use trail between November 1st and March 31st please note the license plate or any other distinguishing features and phone the City of Whitehorse trouble line at 867 667 2111, it’s available 24/7.
  • Please give way to groomers…
    Groomers are far heavier and less maneuverable than most other sleds on the trail. For the safety of both yourself and our volunteers please slow down and give them the right of way.  Also be aware that our groomers and trail crews are all volunteers and they may be on any of our trails at any time.
  • For gate access please call us at 867 667 7680.  Special project?  Did we miss one during the changing of the seasons? Call us and we’ll bring the key!
  • Interested in Grooming? Trail repairs? We can always use your help!  Please check out or Volunteer page for more information.
