Aislinn McManus

Aislinn solo playboating

My name is Aislinn, I grew up in Whitehorse, YT and was introduced to paddling through trips on the Yukon river with my parents and school trips throughout the territory. The past few summers I have been fortunate to be able to come back to the Yukon every summer and spend time learning and teaching others how to enjoy the many amazing rivers Yukon has to offer. Teaching and guiding with Yukan Canoe has allowed me to improve my paddling skills, learn how to solo canoe, spend more time in the outdoors, and help many others do the same in a safe and fun environment!

When I’m not paddling or skiing you can find me working as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist or studying to complete my degree in Athletic Therapy. I have experience training and treating active individuals from various sports and am currently designing programs for whitewater paddlers and backcountry skiers. Looking forward to meeting you in an eddy on one of my favorite rivers, whether that be the Lapie, the Takhini (Nàkhū Chù), or the Rouge.
