CAMPTON, N.H. (AP) - In celebration of President’s Day, the White Mountain National Forest is joining with other national forests to waive fees at all day-use areas on Monday.

Fees will remain in effect for overnight camping, cabin rentals, permits, reservations, and activities offered by concessionaires.

Forest officials are reminding visitors to plan ahead and be prepared for the winter weather. It can be harsh and changeable, and colder and more severe in the mountains than in the valleys.

U.S. Forest Service Snow Rangers from the Mount Washington Avalanche Center strongly advise visitors to plan ahead and be prepared for severe weather on Mount Washington, which has had some avalanche warnings.
