The question for Skagway visitors is not, “ What’s there to do in Skagway”: It’s more like; “What can’t you do in Skagway”? Like most communities in Southeast Alaska, Skagway has extensive opportunities for those wanting to get out there and explore. Canoeing, kayaking, mountain and ice climbing, rafting, hiking, biking, skiing…..the list goes on.
This winter will be the 23rd running of the Buckwheat Ski Classic. A cross country ski event designed for the “lazy, the infirm and a few who are fast”. Skiers from Yukon, British Columbia, Washington and Alaska converge on our little town for a spring romp in our winter playground. Distances of 50km, 25km, 10km and 5km for kids are included. There’s also a snow shoeing trail as well. Tracks are set by early February and the skiing lasts until mid May. This is just one of our winter opportunities.
Imagine yourself on top of a mountain. It doesn’t matter if it’s winter or summer. Once you reach those summits you can look off in any direction and see that the wilderness goes on forever….and even though you know there are towns and villages out there it matters not, because they’re of such little significance, they don’t bother you. Come and experience it for yourself.
