North Klondike Valley (Winter)


Distance: 35 km
Elevation Gain: 340 m (1115 ft)
Time: 2-3 days
Difficulty: Moderate

The winter route up the North Klondike Valley to Divide Lake is a great overnight ski trip within Tombstone Territorial Park. The route starts from the Tombstone Campground and follows along the frozen North Klondike River all the way to the lake. This route is best attempted in the late winter/early spring based on temperature, daylight hours and snow conditions. Also the valley is one of the few areas where snowmobile use is allowed in the park, therefore there is typically a packed trail to the lake, which makes the skiing a lot easier. Basic route finding skills are required.

Pilot's Peak


Distance: 9 km
Elevation Gain: 751 m (2464 ft)
Time: 5.5 hours
