Plow crews in Glacier National Park continue to make progress. On the west side of the Going-to-the-Sun Road, crews have plowed past The Loop, and are approaching the Haystack Creek area.
Currently, 17 miles of the Going-to-the-Sun Road are open for travel. Visitors can drive 11.5 miles from the West Entrance to Lake McDonald Lodge, and 5.5 miles from the St. Mary Entrance to Rising Sun.
Yesterday, on the park's Facebook page, officials announced that the road into the Many Glacier Valley is now open. They also announced that the Two Medicine Road is open all the way into the valley as well. However, the road into the Two Medicine Campground is still closed.
