Trail Conditions


Trail conditions listed here are for reference only, actual conditions will vary. 
Please respect all trail users, give right-of-way to groomers, and report trail conditions to the K.S.A. after your ride. 

*** Unfortunately at this time our Trail Conditions page is only maintained and updated during the Yukon snowmobiling season, usually starting sometime in November and finishing sometime in April.  Please check back then for trail condition updates.  The rest of our website (News, Events, etc.) will continue to be updated year-round.  ***

  • Last update: 01 May 2016.
  • 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 e-mailing us after they’ve been out on the trails. Also please report any damaged or missing signs, gates, etc. The sooner we know about a problem the sooner our volunteers can fix it.
  • 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 667-7680.  Special project?  Did we miss one during the changing of the seasons? Call us and we’ll bring the key! Over the years we’ve spent countless volunteer hours and donated funds repairing damaged and torn down gates, meanwhile there was a perfectly good key sitting beside a perfectly good phone.
  • Interested in Grooming? Trail repairs? We can always use your help!  Please check out or Volunteer page for more information.
