Most of the roads and highways to Glacier are well maintained and open for vehicles nearly all year long.  Park roads are typically clear during the spring, summer and fall months.  Going-to-the-Sun Road is open from mid-June through mid-October (sections of the lower-elevation are open year-round). 

Every attempt is made to clear Going-to-the-Sun Road and open Logan Pass as soon as conditions permit. Spring snowstorms or excess snow accumulation will dictate when Logan Pass can be safely opened for traffic. Typically, Logan Pass opens sometime in May and Logan Pass opens around June 15th.

Due to road maintenance begun in September, parts of the road will be closed. Going-to-the-Sun Road is beginning a $170 million renovation. You can still reach Logan Pass from the St. Mary access or Highway 2. Tour services will also continue operation.
