Coming soon! Don't miss YUKONICON 2016.

Hello! ‪#‎Yukonicon‬ will be replacing our Cinco De Marmot event and is the first Yukon event of 2016!! (since Rainier was cancelled) We miss you guys!

A little history for those who are new: A few times throughout the year, Yukon Trading Company puts on dealer outings in an effort to connect your staff to the products they’re selling in the environment they were intended for. These events provide a unique opportunity to camp with your reps, demo the brands and products that Yukon represents—not to mention tons of fun in a partylike atmosphere happening in the middle of the beautiful Pacific Northwest. This is a very casual camp environment and the sole purpose is to get out, with friends and enjoy the beautiful outdoors with other like-minded people and super heros. There are a handful of clinic opportunities throughout the event for products you currently carry as well as those which you might consider. All of it is optional so come for a day, a night or the whole thing. 
Get your RVSP in as soon as you have the time off!

Yukon Trading | Marmot | Mt. Rainier Winter Campout

January 14 - 17,  2016

Register Here and get the details.

 

Yukon Trading | Marmot | Mt. Rainier Winder Campout

If you're looking to join us on Rainier in January for the Yukon Winter Campout then you've come to the right place! There are just a few important details for us to share and then a few questions we have for you:


We will provide sleeping and cook tents as well as stoves and fuel. You'll need to bring all your own bedding, eating utensils, headlamps, etc. as well as your own food and drink plus all the usual stuff for winter camping.


If you're not sure what to bring, Google "winter camping checklist" for a good start. You'll also need snowshoes or skis to get to camp as the snow will be too deep to just wear boots. Last but not least, you'll need a five gallon bucket with a lid to store your food in. Bears are not an issue but there are some pretty "friendly" foxes in the area that will eat your lunch. 


Camp and heated bathrooms with running water are within about 200 yards of your car. This makes it easy to throw in an extra layer or two, bring extra food and camp in style. It's also a great opportunity to introduce someone to winter camping so bring someone new! We'll have some sleds to help get your gear to and from the cars as well as some shovels to help excavate your tent. 


The road from Longmire to Paradise is gated each night. Here's the gate schedule, weather permitting:


Gate open 9:00 am
Uphill gate closes 4:00 pm
Gate closed 5:00 pm
Allow half an hour to return to the gate from Paradise.


Last but not least TIRE CHAINS ARE REQUIRED IN THE PARK ABOVE LONGMIRE!! You rarely ever need them but sometimes the rangers will check and will turn your car around if you don't have them.
