Climb Yukon has been active in promoting the sport of climbing in the Yukon over the past decade, notably through the Yukon Youth Climbing Team. 2016-2017 was a year of many changes for the Association as the directors started to evaluate the need to build a climbing facility in Whitehorse. Many new activities were organized to identify the need, to promote the project and to start the fundraising efforts.
The board of directors regroups climbers that came together in 2015 to discuss the idea of a year-round publically accessible indoor climbing facility in Whitehorse, Yukon. Following the Climb Yukon Annual General Meeting in March 2016, a new board of directors was formed. The board is composed of experienced climbers, project managers, former indoor climbing gyms staff, medical practitioners, etc.
