Glacier National Park
Current Road Information
Current weather information
Currently 12.5 miles of the Going-to-the-Sun Road are open for travel. Visitors can drive 11.5 miles from the West Entrance to Lake McDonald Lodge, and 1.0 miles from the St. Mary Entrance to Foot of St. Mary Lake. The “Alpine segment” of the Road, including Logan Pass, is not accessible by vehicle for the remainder of the season. The Quarter Circle Bridge Road is closed due to winter weather conditions.
Glacier National Park is open every day of the year and visitors can enter the park at anytime. Winter weather tends to dictate when most visitor facilities open and close. Generally from late May to early September, facilities are open to welcome summer visitors.
As you can see from the images above, we could very well have an early thaw this year. The snowpack was light in the park and roads are already being opened along the eastern slope.
Plowing of Glacier's roads, begins in late March on the east side of the park and by the beginning of April, plow crews turn their focus to the Going-to-the-Sun Road. Plowing of this historic landmark can take two and a half to three months. By mid to late May, most roads will be open for vehicle travel with the exception of the Going-to-the-Sun Road. The actual date of opening will depend on whether crews have finished plowing the road.
