Changes to Winter Permit System areas
This year, some Winter Restricted Areas have been combined. Learn more about these changes.
A Winter Permit System is in effect to manage winter backcountry access so that it doesn’t conflict with the highway avalanche control program. You are responsible for your own safety in the backcountry. Anyone travelling into the backcountry must have avalanche training and appropriate safety equipment. It is critical that anyone venturing into the backcountry in Rogers Pass be aware of and comply with the area’s Winter Permit System, for your safety and everyone else playing or travelling through the pass. Winter Permits are available at the Rogers Pass Discovery Centre.

Entering prohibited areas, or restricted areas that are closed, is an offence under the Canada National Parks Act and places staff, emergency responders, the travelling public and the user themselves at risk. Offenders may be subject to fines and/or be prosecuted.
