ADDITIONAL INFO:

  • Last update: 30 Nov 2016.
  • Please report trail conditions to 867 667 7680 or klonsnow@yknet.ca
    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. Also please report any damaged or missing signs, gates, etc.
  • 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.
  • Please give way to groomers…
    Sleds towing 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 may be on any of our trails at any time.
  • Please note wheeled vehicles (Including but not limited to cars, trucks, ATVs, side by sides, dirtbikes, etc.) are not allowed on any of the snowmobile trails or multi-use trails from November 1st through March 31st each year.   All it takes is one wheeled vehicle to shred a trail’s snow base and ruin it for everyone else.
  • 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.
