Entrance fees to Glacier National Park, as well as other units of the National Park Service, will be waived on Monday, January 20, in commemoration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Visitors are encouraged to experience the park’s winter landscape. Snowshoeing and skiing are popular winter recreational activities in Glacier National Park. Be prepared for changing weather conditions as weather can vary drastically from lower valley locations to higher elevation locations. Severe weather, lack of snow, winter rains, or melting conditions can quickly alter the difficulty of any winter trip.

Visitors are encouraged to visit the park’s website for information about skiing and snowshoeing at http://www.nps.gov/glac/planyourvisit/crosscountryskiing.htm or contact the park at 406-888-7800. 

Avalanches may pose a danger in the mountainous portions of the park and surrounding areas. Please visit the Flathead Avalanche Center’s website for updated information and advisories at http://www.flatheadavalanche.org/.

U-shaped valley carved by a glacier

Glacier National park was named for the glaciers that carved, sculpted, and formed this landscape millions of years ago. Despite the recession of current glaciers, the park's name will not change when the glaciers are gone.
