Weather is always unpredictable but especially so in Glacier. Cold snowy days are typical now through early Spring. Come prepared for changing conditions and potentially very cold and very snowy days.
Stay vigilant as you drive park roads, as many animals in Glacier are active year-round. Deer frequent the sides of the roadways and may dash out in front of your car. Winter places extra stress on park wildlife so make sure to always stay at least 25 yards from all wildlife and at least 100 yards from bears or wolves.
