West Glacier, MT – Going-to-the-Sun Road remains closed to vehicle traffic between Avalanche Creek and Jackson Glacier Overlook due to weather.

Pavement preservation crews have completed spring work in the alpine section of the road. However, significant inclement weather is currently preventing the road from opening to vehicle traffic, as conditions are not suitable for motorized travel.

Park rangers have been monitoring road status throughout the afternoon and evening, and have noted deteriorating conditions. Temperatures are currently below freezing, with freezing rain and snow in some high elevation areas coating the roadway. More rain is expected, raising the possibility of rock or mudslides.

The hiker and biker shuttle will be available tomorrow (Saturday) and hiker and biker access up the Going-to-the-Sun Road is possible.

Visitors should monitor park social media accounts for the latest updates as several park web pages including road status and the Recreation Access Display are not functioning properly this weekend.
