Chilkoot Trail National Historic Site is shared by a wide range of winter users, from snow mobilers and dog mushers, to snow boarders, skiers and snowshoers. Winter users are responsible for their own safety and are expected to make their own evaluations of weather, snow stability and avalanche danger.

Winter backcountry safety

Winter users need to be self sufficient and accept a high level of responsibility for their own safety.
