Denali National Park opens southern area for snowmachines

by Phillip Manning ~ December 10th, 2013

The National Park Service announced on Monday that part of the southern portion of Denali National Park are now open for snowmachine use.  The portion of the Park that makes up the original Mt. McKinley National Park is always off-limits to snowmachines, but the land south of the crest of the Alaska Range that was added to the Park in 1980 may now be used, according to the Park Service.

While snowmachining is permitted, the Park Service says that riding conditions could be dangerous in some areas due to thin ice, open water, and avalanche hazard.

Information, including a map of the areas where snowmachines are allowed, is available at the Denali National Park and Preserve website.
