Glacier National Park managers are implementing new lottery-based backcountry camping reservations intended to preserve the park’s overloaded internet system and campers’ chances at getting sites.

The new system will collect all campsite reservation requests placed opening day, this Friday, and process them in a randomly sequenced order.

Another blast of winter weather was expected to drop up to 8 inches of fresh powder in parts of the Missoula and Bitterroot valleys by Wednesday evening. This just two days after a powerful winter storm buried Hamilton and Stevensville in up to 2 feet of snow.

Heavy snow will continue this week across north central Idaho into west central Montana, bringing blowing snow, low visibility, and treacherous driving conditions.

The winter storm dumping and blowing snow across much of western Montana is forcing school closures and creating severe driving conditions.

National Weather Service Missoula issued a telling tweet Monday afternoon.

"It looks like #spring has been cancelled until further notice."
