Have you ever asked yourself,
“Why am I waiting in 30-minute lift lines at this mega-resort?”
If you have, you’re certainly not alone.
We love to share some of the world’s most remote ski areas so you can sit back in your office chair and daydream about skiing endless Jerry-free laps at a reasonable price.
Today’s ski area:
Mt. Sima is one of three lift-serviced ski areas in the entirety of Canada’s remote Yukon territory.
The ski area sits just 9 miles from the city of Whitehorse (pop. ~25,000), which is the capital of the Yukon Territory.
Lifts run at at the ski area Thursday-Sunday, and a full-day lift ticket only costs ~$42 USD.
Skiable Acres: 91 ac.
Longest Run: 1.5 mi.
Average Snowfall: N/A
Lifts: 2 (1 fixed-grip quad, 1 handle tow)
Closest Ski Area to Mount Sima: Eaglecrest Ski Area, AK (220+ mi)
Fun Fact: Mount Sima is a freestyle haven. The resort has 3 terrain parks, an airbag, a snow cross course, and a halfpipe.
Mt. Sima is well-off the beaten path, but that’s what makes it so alluring. Imagine hitting this place up when the northern lights are visible.
Wonder how many people can say that they’ve skied this gem? Probably not too many.
Add another one to the bucket list!
