MAUI (HawaiiNewsNow) - In a rare sight, the summit of Haleakala on Maui is closed today due to snow.

There is snow on the summit, but the real reason for the closure is because there is black ice on road making access difficult.

The park is open up to headquarters only.

Viewer Aki'Ra sent us this photo he took from his home in upper Kula. Check out ConnectNow for more photos of Haleakala.
