Our official partner hotel in Whitehorse is the Best Western Gold Rush Inn. MYAU athletes who stay there get reduced rates. When you make your room booking for 2022 please make sure you let them know you are with the race and give them the group block number YAU-1. The reduced room rates for single/double occupancy (excl. tax):
CAD 117.00 for a comfort room with either 1 queen or 2 double beds
CAD 137.00 for a deluxe room with 1 or 2 queen bed
CAD 157.00 for a premium room with 1 or 2 queen beds, newly renovated and top floor
Rates do not include breakfast or any other meals.
The Best Western Gold Rush Inn does have a partner hotel (Edgewater Hotel). 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 Best Western Gold Rush 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 by sending an email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
