RESIDENT SNOWMOBILING SEASON IN GROS MORNE NATIONAL PARK DELAYED UNTIL JANUARY 6 

UPDATE: ADAM’S AND MCKENZIE’S ACCESS ROADS ARE OPEN TO SNOWMOBILERS IN GROS MORNE NATIONAL PARK

 

ROCKY HARBOUR, NL, December 21, 2022 – The start of the resident snowmobiling season in Gros Morne National Park has been delayed due to lack of consistent freezing temperatures and inadequate snow cover. The tentative opening date for the resident snowmobile season is January 6, 2023. Although the start of the resident snowmobiling season in Gros Morne National Park is delayed, Adam’s and McKenzie’s access roads are open to snowmobilers provided the roads are snowcovered. The use of these roads will not impact vegetation, wildlife or ecosystems, but will enable residents of park communities in the south to access areas outside of Gros Morne National Park. Parks Canada will issue further notices as conditions change.

 

The resident snowmobile season usually runs from November 1 to May 15. However, dates are subject to change at the discretion of Parks Canada due to factors such as, but not limited to absence of snow, unfavorable snow conditions, dangerous conditions, or impact to vegetation, wildlife or ecosystems.

 

Parks Canada thanks snowmobilers in advance for staying safe, respecting closure notices, staying inside designated corridors, staying away from exclusion zones, and working with our staff to protect and preserve our environment. By following the conditions of the snowmobile permits, riders will help ensure that the wonders of Gros Morne National Park are protected into the future.

 

Please see attached Superintendent’s Closure Notice for more information on the delayed start to the season.
