Kenai Fjords National Park announces that the Exit Glacier area is now open for snowmachine use. The opening is over a month later this year due to warm temperatures and rain that prevented the accumulation of adequate snow depth necessary to ensure resource protection. Please recreate responsibly to avoid damaging park resources.  

Snowmachines are now permitted in the park's developed area, specifically the road to Exit Glacier, parking areas, a designated route through the campground to Exit Creek, and within Exit Creek. As long as there is adequate snow depth, snow density, and frozen soil that prevents damage to park resources snowmachine activity will continue to be permitted. If there are any questions concerning conditions or regulations contact the park at (907) 422-0500.
