Snag / Beaver Creek

Please note the road to Snag was closed due to fires in the area and we have added an alternate location - Beaver Creek. We are now taking entries from either location as one entry.

Fun Fact
On February 3, 1947, the record-low temperature for North America was recorded in Snag -63 Celsius (-81.4 F). In 1947, Snag’s population was made up of eight to ten First Nation people and fur traders, along with an additional 15-20 airport personnel who used the airport barracks that remain at the site.

Find It
Snag is 25 kilometres east of Beaver Creek. Turn right just before Snag Junction Campground and continue about 24 kilometres to a fork in the road – right to the Snag airstrip and left to the White River. Continue left about 100 meters to the Snag barracks.

Upload a clear picture of yourself standing in front of the barracks building and make sure to hold the “CKRW 50 Years” sign and a date the photo was taken.


 

Fun Fact
Just a few kilometres from the Alaska-Yukon border, Beaver Creek is the westernmost community in Canada. It is about 25 kilometres from the Little John archaeological site which has produced artifacts dating as far back as 14,000 years.

Find It
Beaver Creek is on the Alaska Highway, about 186 kilometres northwest of Destruction Bay. The Welcome to Beaver Creek sign is on the right-hand side as you come into town. Be sure to park in a spot that your vehicle is pulled completely off the highway. 

Upload a clear picture of yourself standing in front of the Welcome to Beaver Creek sign and make sure to hold the “CKRW 50 Years” sign and a date the photo was taken.
