The snow plows in Glacier National Park have been working overtime this month.

Going to the Sun Road is still closed at this time, and after watching the video above it isn’t hard to see why.
The road will stay closed until at least July 13, maybe longer.
Going-to-the-Sun Road will open through Logan Pass “no earlier than” July 13, 2022. This date is not a prediction of when the road will open – it is to help with trip planning purposes. Visitors may access Going-to-the-Sun Road via the St. Mary entrance on the east side without a vehicle reservation until the road is open to Logan Pass.
🚍The park’s free shuttle will accommodate the late opening:
📍On the west side: Starting July 1, shuttles will run from 7am-7pm daily, offering all stops between Apgar and Avalanche Campground. A shuttle with a bike trailer will also be running.
📍On the east side: starting July 1, the shuttles will run from 8 am-7 pm for all stops between St. Mary and Sun Point. A shuttle with a bike trailer will also be running.
At least having ‘too much snow’ is a good reason not to be able to open!
Do you have plans to visit any national parks this summer?
