A planned public open house and “industry night” for contractors interested in bidding on rebuilding the Sperry Chalet in Glacier National Park is the latest victim of the federal government shutdown.

Phase I of rebuilding the chalet, which burned in August 2017, started in 2018 after the snows melted.

The open house was scheduled for Jan. 8 in Kalispel, Mont. and included a public open house celebrating the completion of Phase I of the rebuild, according to a National Park Service news release.

In an email update sent Friday the Parks Service announced that the event has been postponed due to a “lapse in federal appropriations.”
