Our official partner hotel in Whitehorse is the Coast High Country Inn. MYAU athletes who stay there get reduced rates. When you make your room booking for 2020 please make sure you let them know you are with the race and give them the group block number 1973. The reduced room rates for single/double occupancy (excl. tax):
CAD 115.00 for a standard / comfort room with either 1 queen or 2 double beds
CAD 135.00 for a superior room with 1 king bed or 2 queen beds
CAD 155.00 for a premium room with 1 king bed and fireplace
Rates do not include breakfast or any other meals.
The Coast High Country Inn does have partner hotels (Edgewater Hotel and Gold Rush Inn). When it is fully booked they will try to accommodate you there. You can of course also stay in other hotels or at a hostel. However, we do recommend the Coast High Country Inn not just because of the reduced room rates. A lot of it is about convenience. All of our pre-race “events” (dealing with paperwork, picking up rental gear, training course, dinner) happen there. So, it’s a lot easier for you to simply walk down the stairs and not have to worry about how to get there each time. And of course they know us there and don’t mind if you park your sled in the lobby. If you do sign up for the race, please book your accommodation as soon as possible. Please do not book online! In order to get the discount you can make your booking either via phone (+1 867-667-4471) or by sending an email (email@example.com).
