The West Rogers Winter Restricted Area in Glacier National Park is closed until further notice.

According to a Facebook post in Parks Canada’s Parks Mountain Safety page, this closure comes after several people entered the Macdonald West Winter Prohibited Area on Feb. 22.

“The Winter Permit System in Glacier National Park needs 100 per cent compliance,” reads the post.
