Contact: Kyle Patterson, 970-586-1363
Looking for a unique gift idea for the holidays? A Rocky Mountain National Park Annual Pass is a great gift for that person who enjoys visiting the park or would like to visit more often.
A Rocky Mountain National Park Annual Pass is a gift that gives in many ways. Your recipient will be able to enjoy all the beauty and adventure the park has to offer during all seasons and Rocky Mountain National Park benefits greatly from the purchase as well. From enjoying breathtaking scenery to hiking, viewing wildlife and wildflowers to snowshoeing, the park has something to offer everyone, depending on their interests and what season they visit. Fees at the park have added approximately 30 percent to the park's annual budget, which assist with natural and cultural resource management and science research, as well as repair, rehabilitation and renovation needs.
The annual pass is $40 and can be purchased at any Rocky Mountain National Park entrance station, or by calling (970) 586-1438 to make a credit card purchase. “The Rocky Mountain National Park annual pass is a great deal. If you visit twice a year it pays for itself,” said Superintendent Vaughn Baker, “plus, eighty percent of those fees stay right here in Rocky Mountain National Park.” For general information about Rocky Mountain National Park, please contact the park’s information office at (970) 586-1206 or visit the park’s website at www.nps.gov/romo.
