The 2012/13 Winter Permit System is now in effect in Glacier National Park.

In recent years there have been extensive changes to the Winter Permit System. These include changes to Winter Restricted and Prohibited Area boundaries, parking, and permit administration.

Daily and Annual Winter Permits are now available, with the Annual Winter Permit holders having to take an on-line quiz. The quiz is available by visiting parkscanada.gc.ca/skirogerpass and consists of 25 questions.

The Annual Winter Permit will be issued when proof of successful completion is provided to park staff at the Rogers Pass Discovery Centre, along with vehicle license plate number(s).

A terms and conditions, waiver of liability and indemnity agreement must also be accepted and signed.

Daily, individual winter permits will continue to be available at the Rogers Pass Discovery Centre.

The Rogers Pass Discovery Centre is open between Nov. 23, 2012  and April 30, 2013. The centre will be open 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., but is closed 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. between Tuesday and Friday.

People are reminded that entering a closed area in the park without a permit is dangerous and an offence under the Canada National Parks Act. Offences are punishable on conviction of a fine of up to $200,000.

Visitors should note that Glacier Park Lodge is closed and there is no fuel or hotel accommodation in Rogers Pass.
