Snow Crews Making Progress on the Going-to-the-Sun Road

Plows continue to make progress on snow removal throughout Glacier National Park. The latest update on the Glacier website reports that the West Lakes Road Crew has cleared snow down to the pavement up to Swede Point - roughly 1.5 miles above The Loop.

On the west side of the Divide the Going-to-the-Sun Road is open from the West Entrance to the Lake McDonald Lodge. On the east side the road to open to Rising Sun.

The update also mentions that the Hudson Bay Road Crew removed snow from the Two Medicine Campground, and has encountered snow drifts that were 5 to 20 feet deep in the campground loops. Right now the Two Medicine Road is open to Running Eagle Falls.
