This past week, Brian and Ashley headed up North to Whitehorse to visit our customers before the snow started falling, with lows of -3, it sometimes felt as if it was snowing! From the beginning of the trip, they were greeted with some great small town hospitality, welcomed by each contractor they were able to visit. They also had the opportunity to visit some old job sites, see the 3rd photo for the Bryan Steam boiler building in the new Whistlebend complex, a project we supplied a Bryan Steam boiler and A-Vent to (note the truck stuck in the mud in the corner of the photo).
With a city of only 20,000 people they were amazed to see the size of the Canada Games Centre located just outside of downtown, an amazing facility with an indoor pool, multiple skating rinks, an indoor soccer field, indoor basketball court, gym, fitness studio & a running track overlooking it all on the 3rd floor. See the view from the Centre in the 4th photo! Ashley couldn’t pass up the opportunity to try out this facility and spent the evening here.
Lucky enough to soak in some of the beauty Whitehorse had to offer, they experienced some of the longest most beautiful sunsets. Whitehorse is also known as “The Land of the Midnight Sun” however at this time of year the sun is setting around 9:30 PM. Another sight to see is Miles Canyon, during the gold rush there was a railroad track along the canyon, parts of it can still be seen today! This is one of the larger attractions in Whitehorse, and very popular with hikers and mountain bikers!
Hope you enjoyed an inside look at Raven’s trip to the Land of the Midnight Sun!
