The National Park Service (NPS) is accepting applications for commercial use authorizations (CUA) to provide vehicle tours on the Denali National Park Road between mid-February and May 10th. This is a new winter commercial opportunity for the park.
Beginning in February 2014, the NPS will plow the Denali Park Road as far as the Mountain Vista Rest Area (Mile 12) for a 3-5 year trial period in order to provide additional mountain viewing and winter recreational opportunities for park visitors. Previously the road was plowed only to Park Headquarters (Mile 3) during the winter.
The specific stipulations for the CUA, including the type of passenger vehicles that will be allowed, and the application are available at http://www.nps.gov/akso/management/commerical_authorizations.cfm.
Additional park information is also available on the web at www.nps.gov/dena or by calling 907-683-9532 from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm daily. Stay connected with “DenaliNPS” on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Flickr, and iTunes – links to these social media sites are available at www.nps.gov/dena/connect.htm.
