The Lorne Mountain Community Centre (LMCC) maintains and track sets about 12 km of ski trails including 1, 2, 5, 7.5 and 10 km loops and a warm-up loop.

The Carbon Hill Sled Dog and Skijor Race is a fun and friendly community-spirited event based out of the Lorne Mtn. Community Centre on the Annie Lake Road. With participants ranging from recreational and rookie mushers to seasoned Quest veterans, The Carbon Hill is developing a reputation as “The biggest little race in Yukon.” The January start date makes Carbon Hill the inaugural race kicking off Yukon’s mushing and skijor season. The range of race classes means there is something for everyone: From the 30 mile mushing and skijor events that wind through the spectacular scenery of the Watson River Valley, to the wild and exciting 200 meter children’s dog-dash.
There are several Wilderness Touring companies based in the Hamlet of Mt. Lorne as well as bed and breakfast establishments.
