Dedicated crews are successfully clearing Glacier National Park’s famous Going-to-the-Sun Road and conquering the challenging Logan Pass.
Glacier National Park, located in Montana, is a breathtaking wilderness sanctuary spanning over one million acres. Known for its majestic glaciers, pristine lakes, and rugged mountains, it offers unrivaled natural beauty. Visitors can explore diverse ecosystems, hike scenic trails, and witness an abundance of wildlife. It’s a paradise for nature enthusiasts.
Plowing is underway and crews have made it to one of the hardest sections: The Big Drift. Check our website for current conditions, including road closures.
“Michael: Crews start plowing the Going-to-the-Sun Road every year at the beginning of April, but it’s a monumental task.
Andrew: The plows will have to maneuver through avalanche chutes, manage extreme weather, and finally tackle a section simply called “The Big Drift” where snow often blows into a pile 80-feet deep. They do all of this on extreme terrain and it all has to be finished before the road can open to the public.
Michael: Typically, the Going-to-the Sun Road opens for the season in late June or early July, but the opening date will depend on conditions. So if you’re planning to drive to Logan Pass, don’t plan your trip any earlier than that.”
