Amazing property, so happy we stayed here instead of in town. Stayed in a beautiful cabin, it was very clean and had a full kitchen. I walked down to the Yukon River - can't recommend this enough, it was a great walk.

I'm not sure since we are not cross country skiers and we did not ask. I suggest to go to their link and ask Heather.
