Enjoy Whitehorse in the spring

March is the best time of the year to enjoy many activities around Whitehorse! If you are able to spend a few days here before or after the workshop, here are some activities we can recommend:

Cross-country skiing

The Whitehorse Nordic Center offers 85 kilometres of groomed trails for classic and skate skiing and snowshoeing. An additional 20 kilometres of un-groomed single track are available for snowshoeing, ski touring and Fat Bike riding. Cross-country skis, snowshoes and fat bikes are available for rental at the Ski Base.

Join Mo for a post-workshop ski on Monday March 5.

Takhini hot springs

The Takhini hot pools are located about 25 min drive from downtown Whitehorse. The perfect way to relax after a day of workshop discussions and debates. Not to be missed if you are a geologist!

Drink beer

Whitehorse is home to two amazing local breweries.

Yukon Brewing offers tours and has a store located downtown Whitehorse. Their beers are also widely available in most of Yukon pubs and restaurants.

Winterlong Brewing Co. has a tasting room located on the Mount Sima road, just 10 min drive south of town. Their beers are also available in a number of downtown venues. Not to be missed if you love IPAs!
