Would those of you who have rented cars in Skagway please post websites or telephone numbers so I can reserve one? (Since I am traveling in early August, I assume they will be booked and I need to reserve.)
Sure would appreciate it.
...by the way, the Skagway Newspaper printed a "mile by mile" break down of the sights along the Klondike Highway (75 miles worth all the way to Emerald Lake) as well as doing the same for the WhitePass Rail. A friend that went to Alaska earlier this year got a copy of it for me. You may want to call your car rental agency to see if they have photocopies of these pages from the newspaper
We actually reserved through Avis but when we got to the Westmark (sp?) Hotel where the office is - they didn't have a car for us!! However, we were referred to PB cruisers and were able to get a car. I would book directly with PB so that you don;t miss out on getting a vehicle.
We drove to Carcross - fabulous scenery and we also had great weather that day - they said the visibility was 40 miles. Be prepared for mosquitos if you make many stops and are in and out of the car. We personally were not affected (wore long pants with long sleeved tops) but heard that the White Pass bus excursion passengers were bitten alive! Yikes!
