FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) The Denali National Park and Preserve is currently looking for public input on how to improve visitors experience in the winter and spring seasons, or what they call, the 'shoulder seasons'.

Denali receives the majority of tourism during the summer, but off-season tourism is growing by approximately 400 percent during the past 6 years, according to the Denali National Park and Preserve.

Ideas in consideration are described in the 'Winter and Shoulder Season Plan' which can be found on the NPS website. Ideas currently in consideration include winter road plowing, increased opportunities for camping, and providing temporary parking lines at rest areas. A public informational meeting and presentation regarding the Winter and Shoulder Season Plan will be held at the Morris Thompson Cultural Center October 15 at 6 pm.
