US - Canada Border at White Pass Summit, British Columbia

As you reach White Pass Summit, you will see this border marker and the flags of the United States and Canada. Because the terrain here is so rugged, the customs checkpoint for the US and Canada is located in nearby Fraser, British Columbia. Still, you officially cross into Canada from Alaska here at White Pass Summit, elevation 2,865 feet (873 meters).
