Fee Free Day on Martin Luther King Jr Holiday
Contact: Denise Germann, 406 888 5838
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.
