Three Parts of the Klondike Challenge

Winter Over!

This is car camping, with camp setup by candle and Coleman lantern. If you can’t handle tenting, there are LIMITED cabins available on a first come first served basis. BONUS: If you stay Saturday night, Sunday morning breakfast will be free!

Winter Prepared!

The first event will be to pass inspection on your sled, patrol gear, and most important, your personal gear. Without the proper gear, your patrol will not proceed from the  Chilkoot pass inspection station.

Challenge Events!

These events are the heart of Klondike! Once you start each event, your patrol must complete the event to the satisfaction of your Klondike event evaluator then move on to the next challenge. The patrols with the most successfully completed events will be rewarded.
