Glacier NP in mid-June?

Jump to last reply

I live on the East Coast of the USA, and I just realized that I'll be in Seattle on business until June 9, 2011. It occurred to me that this might be the perfect opportunity to extend my trip out West, and take that trip to Glacier National Park that I've been wanting to do for a while. I also want to make a return visit to Yellowstone, so I figured I might tack that on to the end.

I've never been to Glacier before. My first thought was that arriving on June 10 might put me right in a nice "shoulder season" when the crowds aren't too bad yet. However, I then did some research, and discovered that the higher-elevation trails don't open until July. I also discovered that the National Park Service lists the "Earliest date for entire [Going-to-the-] Sun Road spring opening across Logan Pass, weather permitting" as June 17.

So... should I do it? On June 10, will the rest of the Going-to-the-Sun Road be open, other than Logan Pass? If so, what will be the impact on my trip if the Pass is closed?

I realize I could probably find the answers to all my trip planning questions if I scanned through a bunch more old forum posts, but I've reached the point where I may just stop planning the whole trip if June is too early in the season. If that's the case, I'll probably plan a dedicated trip out West for the following September. I'd love it if the Glacier experts out there could accelerate my progress to the decision point!
