Road Status and Plowing Information
Every spring, and into early summer, the plowing crews engages in the enormous effort to remove the last winter's accumulation of snow from park roads and prepare them for summer visitors. Use these links to keep up-to-date on their progress.
Weather is always unpredictable but especially so in Glacier. Spring brings a mix of weather patterns through the park. One day it may be in the high 60s and 70s and the next it barely cracks the 50s. Rain is frequent and welcomed by emerging spring wildflowers. Come prepared for changing conditions and potentially cold and blustery days.
Animals in the park are active year-round. During the temporary park closure animals may have become used to park roads being vehicle free. Now that part of the park is being reopened, be extra careful of wildlife that may be along roads. Deer frequent the sides of the roadways and may dash out in front of your car. Always make sure to always stay at least 25 yards from all wildlife and at least 100 yards from bears or wolves.
