Chilkoot Pass is the gateway to the Klondike coming up from the Alaskan Panhandle into the Yukon. During the original gold rush, miners would have to carry 20ton of supplies with them to gain entry into the Yukon, to prove they could sustain themselves for one year. Many miners would need to manhandle portage their supplies like sherpas up the snow-and-ice cut steps of the pass in the middle of Arctic winter. That was part of a gameshow challenge of Gold Rush: The Dirt in season 4
