All Kenai Refuge Open for Snowmachining

Refuge Manager Andy Loranger today announced the opening of all areas of the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge traditionally open to snowmachine use effective immediately.

Areas always closed to snowmachine use include the Headquarters area on Ski Hill Road, Skilak Wildlife Recreation Area (except Hidden, Kelly, Petersen and Engineer lakes are open to provide snowmachine access for ice fishing), Swan Lake and Swanson River Canoe Systems, Wolf Lake pipeline corridor and all areas above timberline except in the Caribou Hills.


The Refuge asks all users to be respectful of their surroundings and avoid any windblown areas that have insufficient snow accumulation. Users should also avoid moose and other wildlife whenever possible.

Please see for more information.
