FALL/ WINTER 2021 DREAMSCAPES 23 locavore ingredients (think wild sage-scented potatoes served with elk tenderloin and a morel mushroom and Yukon whisky sauce). "There's something about the thrill of an adult enjoying all those things we did as kids that's magical," says Schiffkorn as he describes some of the luxury lodge's pop- ular winter activities that bring out the kid in us. Imagine zipping across a frozen lake in a snowmobile, ice fishing on a hidden lake, or competing in an old-fashioned game of shinny known as pond hockey. I'm no hockey player, but in the Yukon I became a first-time snowmobiler. At another location, which was equally snow covered, once I got to grips with the throttle, I zoomed along the frozen Takhini River, ringed with snow-garlanded pines and spruce with the soft sloping Golden Horn and Grey Mountains in the distance. I shrieked with glee all the way. My time in the Yukon has taught me that there's no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothes! Warmly clad in rented parka, snow boots and (my own!) thermals, the "Deep Freeze" holds no fear. Instead, a world of exotic snowy adventure is closer than you think. Whether it's as simple as snowshoeing on a frozen lake, learning to mush a dog sled, or as fancy as a private ski plane tour to explore a glacier, you can do it all and much more in the Yukon.
