White pass, between Whitehorse, Yukon and Skagway, Alaska, is home to some of the best backcountry skiing and snowboarding in North America. South Klondike Highway provides easy access points to numerous options. There's a good variety of terrain and the snow conditions are fantastic. I decided Log Cabin access point, 137km south of Whitehorse, with somewhat limited avalanche terrain exposure (key when riding solo), would be my first Yukon backcountry snowboarding experience. My start elevation was about 2,500 feet in a small parking area just off the highway, with an elevation gain of about 1,500 feet in about two hours. Unfortunately, because Yukon only sees five hours of sunlight a day, I couldn't reach the summit in time and was forced to make my descent early, to make it back in time before dark. Unreal experience and incredible snow - will definitely be back to the Yukon to try and scratch more lines off the list.
