Snag is a village located on a small, dry-weather side road off the Alaska Highway 25 kilometers east of Beaver Creek, Yukon, Canada. The village of Snag is located in a bowl-shaped valley of the White River and its tributaries, including Snag Creek. It was first settled during the Klondike Gold Rush.
On February3, 1947, the record-low temperature for continental North America was recorded in Snag: -63.0°C.
That same winter, two previous records had already been set: one in December noted various phenomena, particularly sound such as voices being heard clearly miles from their source. There was a clear sky (except for some ice fog), and mild to little wind.
