Open letter to Whitehorse mayor and council:

Active Trails Whitehorse Association would like to thank mayor and council for providing the necessary funding to allow the clearing of snow on the Riverfront Trail from Rotary Peace Park to Spook Creek Station. This activity commenced in February of 2015 and will be continued this year.

In addition, the city has now included the clearing of the Millennium Trail in the current year’s capital budget. Apparently, the work will be done once a week depending on snowfall.

Trail users have indicated that they are seeing more people on the Millennium Trail than in previous winters. Perhaps this is because clearing has made the trail more accessible than ever before, especially to those with mobility issues.

In addition to mayor and council, we would also like to thank Athletics Yukon for bringing the issue forward for public discussion in November 2014, the city’s parks and community development department, and the operations (public works) staff who actually do the work.

Finally, we would like to thank the Klondike Snowmobile Association for its past efforts in packing the Millennium Trail in often difficult conditions.
