Chris and Joanne Widrig relaxing at Bonnet Plume Lake, June 2015

Welcome to the Yukon! I have been guiding here in the north over forty years.

As with most young guides I started at the bottom of the pecking order, wrangling horses and learning from those with more experience. Many seasons were spent polishing my guiding skills in the Cassiar Mountains, looking after horses in the winter, running a trap line and becoming a proficient bush pilot. People were starting to wonder when I might grow up and get a “real job”…
