YAM is back! Sorry for the lack of posts recently, but boy, winters can sometimes be tough in the Yukon. After a bit of a crazy winter and a much-needed break, we are back and ready to share stories of adventure in the Yukon!
Spring in the Yukon is an amazing time of year. The joy and happiness on Yukoners faces – in reaction to the growing daylight and warmth – is something I can’t get enough of. It also seems, that no matter how long you’ve been here, it is always a surprise to us when the daylight increases. It’s always a freakishly joyous time of year.
Let’s just say that with sunrise at 6:21 am and sunset at 9:10 pm, our days are getting loooong!
We’ve had an exceptional spring so far. It’s been warm, snow is rapidly melting and people are starting to make summer plans.
But! There are still lots of spring activities to do – like skiing at higher elevations, where the snow is not slushy like it is down lower right now. This is the reason you may see many Yukoners rockin’ the face-only tans in March & April.
So, sit back, enjoy the ride – get out there and enjoy this time of year. YAM is back and here’s what we are working on:
- Spring skijoring & pup skijor training
- RV’ing it up the Alaska Highway
- Avalanche Awareness and backcountry skiing
- More girly peeing gadgets (can’t get enough of these, they are necessary when adventuring!)
- If YOU have a story you’d like to share, let us know! You can be visiting, a local, just passing through, anything. We’d LOVE to hear from you and would love even more to share your stories with everyone.
In the meantime, enjoy one of our popular spring activities – visiting Swan Haven and observing the first of the migrating birds into the Yukon. This area is one of the first to have open water in the spring and it is a critical stopover for migrating birds on the long migration to northern nesting grounds.
The Interpretive Centre is open April 1 – April 30. There is also indoor and outdoor interpretive panels, daily swan counts, activities and a superb viewing platform.
