Denali National Park is Accepting Applications for Commercial Winter Tours

by Phillip Manning ~ November 6th, 2013

Earlier this summer, KTNA reported that Denali National Park will start plowing the Park Road earlier in the year than in years past.  The plan is to plow to Mile 12 starting in February.  On Wednesday, the Park issued a press release stating that vendors wishing to operate commercial vehicle tours during the winter road opening may begin applying for permits.  Private vehicles will pay the regular Park entry fee.

In an interview this July, Park spokeswoman Kris Fister said the extra plowing is estimated to cost $25,000.  The new snow removal schedule will be in a trial phase for three to five years, at which point the Park will decide whether additional entry fees justify making the new schedule permanent.
