The National Park Service has selected Belton Chalets, Inc. to operate Granite Park and Sperry Chalets under a new ten year concession contract in Glacier National Park. The existing concession contract will expire on December 31, 2014, and the new concession contract will take effect January 1, 2015.
The Belton Chalets, Inc. has a long history with the chalets. They operated the chalets from 1954-1992, Granite Park Chalet 1996-97, Sperry Chalet 1999-2004 and both chalets again from 2005-2014.
The competitive process for the concessions contract was initiated earlier this year with the release of a prospectus. All offers had to be submitted to the National Park Service by May 19, 2014. An evaluation panel of National Park Service technical experts outside Glacier National Park performed a comprehensive analysis of the proposals and selected the best responsive proposal based on factors identified in the prospectus.
Both chalets can be reached from several trails, including the Highline Trail to the Granite Park Chalet, and the Sperry Trail to the Sperry Chalet.
