Free Park Entrance on Monday

Entrance fees to Glacier National Park, as well as other units of the National Park Service, will be waived on Monday, January 19, 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 in the park.

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.

Additional fee-free days for 2015 include:

February 14-16 President's Day Weekend,
April 18-19 Opening Weekend of National Park Week,
August 25 99th Birthday of National Park Service,
September 26 National Public Lands Day, and
November 11 Veterans Day.
