Two More Glacier Park Roads Open To Cars

Apr 22, 2016

Two more roads are now open to cars in Glacier National Park. Many Glacier and Chief Mountain Roads on the east side of the Park opened today.

On Going-to-the-Sun Road, though, avalanche risks on both the east and west sides have prevented plowing operations from advancing since Wednesday. Park officials recommend that hikers and bikers use caution if they plan to travel on the road this weekend.

According to the  park, avalanches have now blocked Going-to-the-Sun Road where road crews had previously plowed it.

The report also notes that three separate glide avalanches occurred last weekend.

Admission to Glacier and all other National Parks remains free through Sunday in honor of the National Park Service centennial this year.
