DENALI NAT. PARK - The Mat-Su Area Office, Alaska State Parks, announces that Curry Ridge on the east side of the Parks Highway in Denali State Park, is now closed to the use of snowmachines.
The ridge has suffered strong winds that have left the area either bare of snow, or with inadequate snow cover to protect the fragile vegetation.
This area may open again this winter if adequate snow falls to protect underlying vegetation. Closure is effective immediately.
The rest of Denali State Park remains open to the use of snow machines.
