Snow Temporarily Closes Going-to-the-Sun Road at Logan Pass

About an inch of snow and ice forced closure on upper reaches of Glacier Park’s thoroughfare

A two-mile section of Glacier National Park’s iconic Going-to-the-Sun Road remains temporarily closed Monday morning after a snowstorm on Sunday created treacherous driving conditions.

At 3:56 p.m. Sunday, officials closed the alpine section of the road from Big Bend west of Logan Pass to Jackson Glacier Overlook on the east side, and a snowplow was working in poor weather conditions Monday to clear about an inch-and-a-half of snow and ice from the pass.

Glacier Park Spokesperson Tim Rains said it was not immediately clear when the road would reopen, but the forecast does not call for additional snow.

The majority of the scenic Sun Road is open to motorists, who can drive for 28 miles from the West Glacier entrance until reaching the closure and 13.5 miles from the St. Mary entrance.
