In May 2019 I (Manrico) returned to Kluane National Park in the Yukon for another ski traverse in the big icefields. The icefields in Kluane and neighbouring parts of Alaska and British Columbia comprise the third largest glaciated area in the world after Antarctica and Greenland. 18 of Canada’s 20 highest mountains are in Kluane.
This was my third Kluane ski traverse with Kirstie and the first Kluane trip with Ilze and Ove. The 14 day traverse was a circumnavigation (trip around) a group of mountains of which Mt. Queen Mary and Mt. King George are the largest. According to Wikipedia these mountains were named in 1935 for King George V’s and Queen Mary’s silver jubilee.
All Kluane icefields trips start the Silver City Airport at the south end of Kluane Lake, about a three hour drive north of Whitehorse. Icefield Discovery operates an air charter service to the icefields. They also operate a seasonal camp which was the endpoint for both this trip and our 2015 trip.
