Day 4 - Alcan Winter Rally 2004 Itinerary

Previous Day | Back To Alcan Info | Next Day

Day 4, February 21, 380 miles

Whitehorse is the biggest city in the Yukon and our last taste of modern conveniences for a couple of days.  We probably start the fourth day with a TSD section and then head out to the Yukon River Slalom for our second ice race venue.  On the 2000 Winter Alcan it was held on Long Lake right outside Whitehorse and used a three mile course.  This time it may be a slightly different location.  In any case, rumor has it that we will be using some or all of a seven (!) mile road course plowed on a lake.  That should be very interesting and different compared with the 1/4 mile oval used on the first ice race back in Quesnel two days ago.

After the ice racing event we head North following the mighty Yukon River to Dawson City, Yukon.  There are only four bridges along the entire 2300 mile length of the Yukon. We crossed one yesterday a short distance before Whitehorse and we'll cross two more of them today, one in downtown Whitehorse and one in Carmacks.  The remaining bridge is almost 700 miles downstream in Alaska on the Dalton Highway going to Prudhoe Bay (which we crossed in 2000 but won't this time.)  None of us in TeamD have been up to Dawson City and beyond so this is where the trip will get very exciting.

Overnight stop is at the Eldorado Hotel in Dawson City, Yukon.
