WhitePass Summit

This is a scene at the Summit of the White Pass. The high school basketball team regularly traveled to Skagway for games. The trip took 8 hours. Before Caterpillers were used to push back the snow, rotary ploughs on the front engine of the train cut a narrow trail. Each side of the snow bank is 12 to 15 feet high.
