Contact: Melissa Wilson, 406 888-7895
WEST GLACIER, MONT. – Officials at Glacier National Park report that due to a severe National Park Service (NPS) Internet server crash in Washington, D.C., much of Glacier’s Web site cannot be updated or modified. The NPS is working to fix the problem, but IT personnel cannot project when this will occur. This issue affects park Web sites across the country.
Some of the regularly updated pages that are affected by this crash include: the Web camera pages, the news release page, and the recent photos page.
Some Web pages, including the road status page and the campground status page, can be updated. Additionally, requests submitted via the trip planning and information request page are still being received.
