“Sperry Chalet reconstruction activities begin this week, with the work expected to last through the end of October.
Helicopters and pack mules will make frequent trips to the area to ferry in construction equipment. The trail to the chalet may be closed at times to accommodate transportation activity. Visitors can monitor trail status by checking the Glacier National Park Trail Status Webpage and Area Closures.” – The Missoulian
The Sperry Chalet rebuild is underway and we’re stoked to see what the iconic backcountry edifice looks like upon completion.
The goal of the National Park Service is to restore the building “close to as it was,” while modernizing the interior dormitory room. That will likely include some interior walls and insulation so as to provide for a little more privacy.
