About Yukon Backcountry Skiing

With skis, a snowboard or telemark skis, whatever the tools. You are at the right place to find the best slopes between Alaska and the Yukon and to know more about skiing in the Yukon.

I used my experience, my passion for photography and my time well spent in the mountains to write and publish two guide books. The perfect tools to prepare you ski adventures between Alaska and Yukon at White Pass and Haines Pass.

About the author – Claude Vallier

I was born in the small village of le Grand Bornand, in the Aravis mountain range, in the middle of the Alps. I started skiing at the age of 1.5 years old. Skier, snowboarder and mountaineer. Professionally or for fun, I have been skiing in the backcountry for over 25 years and still have the same pleasure to do it.

I have been living in the Yukon for 10 years and still love it more than ever.
