Camping, hiking, climbing, mountaineering, ski touring – all activities in the national parks require a parks pass. Rogers Pass in Glacier National Park is a popular backcountry ski touring destination with an average of 10 m of snowfall a year. In Rogers Pass, explosive artillery fire is regularly used on mountain slopes to protect highway and railway traffic from natural avalanches.
