Snake River, Yukon

The Snake River is part of the Yukon's gorgeous Peel River watershed. This is an intermediate trip, but experience in Class II-III whitewater and solid back-country tripping skills are essential. In addition to the paddling, we plan several days of hiking into the nearby mountains, including at Duo Lakes and Milk Creek/Mt. Macdonald.
