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 2019 please make sure you let them know you are with the race and give them the group block number 1537. The reduced room rates for single/double occupancy (excl. tax):
CAD 107.00 for a comfort room with either 1 queen or 2 double beds
CAD 127.00 for a superior room with 1 king bed or 2 queen beds
CAD 147.00 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).
Our official partner hotel in Dawson City is the Downtown Hotel. And just as a reminder, as is the case in Whitehorse prior to the race, accommodation in Dawson City is not included in the entry fee. If you want to book a room at the Downtown Hotel, please email or phone them and use the group block number B07718. The reduced room rates for single/double occupancy (excl. tax):
CAD 127.00 for a superior room with 2 queen beds in the main building
CAD 117.00 for room in the annex
Additional occupancy over 2 people is an extra CAD 20.00 per person per night plus tax.
Please do not book online! In order to get the discount you can make your booking either via phone (+1 867-993-5346) or by sending an email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
