The heavy snowfall in the Seward area has resulted in Kenai Fjords National Park opening the Exit Glacier Developed Area to off road snowmachine use. Open areas include, Exit Glacier Road, a designated route through the Exit Glacier campground to Exit Creek, and the Exit Glacier outwash plain.

The Park asks those wishing to use the area to review park rules and regulations. Kenai Fjords National Park snowmachine regulations can be found online at Users should be alert for changing snow conditions and hazards buried beneath the snow.

Questions concerning area conditions or regulations should contact Chief Ranger Jesse Pike at 907-422-0500.
