Every year the Going to the Sun Road in Glacier National Park is cleared of snow by a dedicated crew of workers.
Plowing Going-to-the-Sun Road is a monumental challenge each year. Unpredictable spring snow storms or other weather related events can slow down plowing progress. It is not uncommon for plowing crews to need to re-plow sections of park roads when weather events happen. Safety for our plowing crews, contractors, and the public is our utmost concern and priority. These unknown factors make predicting the opening of Going-to-the-Sun Road impossible.
Our plowing status page provides information on where plows are working. You can also watch the action each spring through an annual flickr album. As the status of the road changes, we immediately update our road status page.” National Prak Service
