Statement from Bandelier National Monument on the Resumption of Full Operations 


Los Alamos, NM – With the enactment of the continuing resolution, staff at Bandelier National Monument will resume regular operations on January 30, 2019. Winter Visitor Center hours are, once again, 9am-5pm. Currently, staff is working diligently to safely clean sidewalks and trails of ice and snow that accumulated during the 5-week federal government shutdown. “Warmer days and cold nights have left a dense blanket of icy white on everything. For the safety of park visitors, clearing the trails of hardened snow and ice is imperative before the park can reopen,” stated Superintendent Jason Lott. Please visit www.nps.gov/band for updated information about the park.

When venturing back into the park, the public is asked to stay vigilant as many areas may remain snow packed and icy. Hikers should be aware of current winter conditions and plan accordingly. Know the limits of your abilities and carry the gear necessary to enjoy the beauty that winter brings while enjoying Bandelier’s winter resources safely.

Bandelier’s employees are happy to be back at work, serving the American people and welcoming visitors to their national parks. Please visit www.nps.gov/band, call the Visitor Center, 505-672-3861, ext. 517, or visit Facebook, BandelierNPS, for updated information about the park.

Park Offers Forked Lightning Ranch Open House

Please note, space is limited to a total of 50 vehicles.  Access to the ranch is down a 1.5 mile dirt road.  For safety reasons, parking reservations are required. For more information and to make reservations, contact Pecos NHP at (505) 757-7241.
