The Yukon Avalanche Association checks snow conditions alongside the South Klondike Highway. They publish information on a website and also create web videos explaining snow conditions and how to stay safe.

The crew travel on skis and snowmobiles across a massive landscape. They warn people of avalanche risk.

A Yukon cross-country skiier is headed to the Sochi Winter Olympic games. This week Yukoners signed a banner and sent their best wishes to Emily Nishikawa.

There was a full-size cardboard cutout for taking silly photos and also t-shirts.

This city is big on skiing and Nishikawa has a lot of fans.
