We support the VIPs, or volunteers in parks, who donate their time, skills, and expertise to protect Denali's mountaineering visitors and preserve its glaciated wilderness.
Denali attracts climbers from around the world. VIPs/Volunteers in parks have been integral to the ranger program since its conception in the 1970s, providing medical and technical assistance to imperiled climbers. Without volunteers in parks on every ranger patrol, the rangers' ability to support climbers in need would be greatly diminished. Find out how you can support.
