WEST GLACIER, MONT. – Wintry weather, including snow and ice have caused overnight closures of the three-mile alpine section between Logan Pass and Big Bend four times this week. This section was reclosed Friday morning, but will be reopened as soon as conditions permit. At 9am, park road personnel reported a temperature of 15 degrees Fahrenheit near Logan Pass. 

Logan Pass will reopen to the west as soon as weather improves; however forecasts for weekend weather predict cold temperatures and snow and rain are possible. The east side of Logan Pass between Logan Pass and Jackson Glacier Overlook closed this fall on Monday, September 22 to allow for road repair work near the East Tunnel.

All other park roads remain open for motorized vehicle travel except for the road into Cut Bank Valley, the Chief Mt. Road and a portion of the Inside North Fork Road. Park visitors are urged to check the park’s web site at http://home.nps.gov/applications/glac/roadstatus/roadstatus.cfm for current road status or call park headquarters at 406-888-7800.

U-shaped valley carved by a glacier

Glacier National park was named for the glaciers that carved, sculpted, and formed this landscape millions of years ago. Despite the recession of current glaciers, the park's name will not change when the glaciers are gone.
