Presidents Day Weekend is Free in Glacier

Entrance fees to Glacier National Park, as well as other units of the National Park Service, will be waived this President’s Day Weekend, Saturday through Monday, February 15-17.

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. Extreme caution should be used around lakes, rivers and streams.

Visitors are encouraged to visit the park’s website for information about skiing and snowshoeing, or contact the park at 406-888-7800.

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 2014 include:

• April 19-20 - First Weekend of National Park Week
• August 25 - Birthday of National Park Service
• September 27 - National Public Lands Day
• November 11 - Veterans Day

If planning to visit Glacier anytime during this upcoming season, please note that our website also offers a wide variety of accommodation listings and other things to do to help with all your vacation planning.
