Lassen Volcanic National Park Offers Annual Pass Sales Online
Lassen Volcanic National Park Superintendent Darlene M. Koontz announced the 2011 Lassen Annual Pass is now available for online sales. To purchase online go to the park website http://www.nps.gov/lavo/planyourvisit/feesandreservations.htm or http://www.pay.gov “This is a great new way to purchase the Lassen Annual Pass before arriving at the park for winter recreation” stated Superintendent Koontz. The $25 Lassen Annual Pass is valid for one year from the month of purchase and is also honored at Whiskeytown National Recreation Area. Passes can also be obtained on weekends at the Southwest Entrance Station or during the week at the Kohm Yah-mah-nee Visitor Center and Park Headquarters.
This 2011 Lassen Annual Pass features the photograph entitled, “Newly Fallen Snow” by local photographer Michael Rubin of Shingletown, CA. The Lassen Annual Pass photo contest is held annually and is open to the public. The winning photograph was selected by park employees and volunteers from over 100 submissions.
The Lassen Volcanic Annual Pass is part of the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act, which enables Lassen Volcanic National Park to retain 80% of fees collected through the selling of passes and the collection of entrance fees. These funds pay for needed repairs and projects to improve visitor services and facilities.
The park is open throughout the winter. The road is plowed to the Manzanita Lake area on the north side and to the Kohm Yah-mah-nee Visitor Center on the south side. The visitor center is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For information about ranger-led programs, backcountry permits, and weather and road conditions, visit the park website at www.nps.gov/lavo or call the visitor center at (530) 595-4480.
