Glacier National Park Plow Crews Begin Clearing Going-To-The-Sun Road (Portions Covered by 80ft of Snow)

By

Glacier National Park plow crews are working hard to open the Going-to-the-Sun Road after a massive snow accumulation over the winter. NBC Montana reports the seasonal drift has covered portions of the world-famous road under up to 80 feet of snow. Plow crews reached Logan Pass on Friday and have started clearing the Big Drift. They reached Logan Pass on May 25 last year. The road is currently open to vehicles on the west side to Lake McDonald Lodge.

“Even the bears appreciate the road crew’s work plowing the Going-to-the-Sun Road. The plowing crew is nearing the Rim Rock section, about two miles below Logan Pass.”Glacier National Park
