Peters Hills Closes To Snowmachines
As of Wednesday, January 27, 2010, the Peters Hills in the west end of Denali State Park will close to the use of snowmachines. The area has had a lot of the snow scoured from the exposed ridges by the last wind storm.
The closures in effect will be the Curry and Kesugi ridges (which were closed last week) and the Peters Hills above the 3000 foot elevation. Riders are asked to avoid the windblown areas above these elevations. These areas may open again this winter if adequate snow falls to protect the fragile alpine vegetation.
The rest of Denali State Park remains open to snow machine use. Riders are cautioned that ice over flowing water is present and overflow is present on most lakes in the park.
