- If you require some or all of your gear to travel without you, you must arrange for someone other than White Pass to take the gear through US/Canadian Customs for you. White Pass is unable to transport unaccompanied freight across the US/Canada border.
- This applies to gear/backpacks/canoes/kayaks that would be traveling south from Bennett to Skagway and also gear/backpacks/canoes/kayaks that would be traveling north from Skagway to Bennett
- However, White Pass IS able to transport unaccompanied gear between Carcross and Bennett & Fraser and Bennett, for a fee.
- If you are sending gear into or out of Bennett, you or someone you designate must load/unload your freight onto the train. White Pass staff is not able to load/unload it for you, nor are we able to store it.
