Visiting in the Winter
Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park is open in winter!
Winter is a quiet time in Skagway and limited services are available from October 1 to April 15. Lodging, food services and equipment rentals are available year-round. Skagway's population is very small in the winter, but the community holds several fun family-friendly special events. The area also offers short hiking trails and other winter sports.
Snow cover and temperatures are highly variable in our coastal community. The National Weather Service provides up to date weather forecasts.
Special Events Winter 2017-2018
Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park has special events through out the winter. As new events are scheduled they will be posted here. You can also find out about current events when by contacting us.
Snowshoeing and Skiing
Hardy souls may find abundant natural beauty all to themselves. Depending on snow levels, both snowshoes and cross-country skiing are peaceful and rewarding ways to explore. We encourage you to travel with a partner or a group for safety. Be prepared for all conditions and contact the park with any questions you have about winter recreation.
