NATIONAL PARKS — Glacier National Park officials have announced they expect entire 50 miles of the Going-to-the-Sun Road to be clear of snow and available for vehicle traffic on Wednesday.
This will be the second latest opening of the road and one of only three seasons in which the famous road over Logan Pass has not been open for the Fourth of July holiday.
A flyover of the Big Drift at Logan Pass on June 4th revealed a snowpack over the pavement was about 30 feet deep and looking more like April than June, officials said, noting that this amount of snow at this time of year is unprecedented.
The Highline Trail remains closed at this time no opening date is projected yet.
