After evaluating the Going to the Sun Road this week, park officials have determined the road will not be open fully by the 4th of July holiday. 

Too much snow, apparently.

“Unprecedented winter snows and late spring snow storms slowed plowing progress on Going to the Sun Road this spring. Park officials are working to determine a new “no sooner than date” to help visitors plan. Until the full length of Going to the Sun Road is plowed and open to traffic, the west side vehicle closure will remain at Avalanche Creek and the east side at Jackson Glacier Overlook.” – Glacier National Park Service

It’s been a very strange spring/summer in North America with plenty of cold and snow after many areas saw almost no snow in January, February, and March this season.

Only last week Going to the Sun Road was hit by two feet of new snow with a late-season snowstorm. 

There is currently no estimate on when the road will open for the summer season.
