WEST GLACIER – Time is running out for people to enjoy one last drive over the Going-to-the-Sun Road.

But the most scenic route in the State of Montana remains closed a week after the Glacier National Park high country was slammed by an early snowstorm.

The iconic road was closed as September turned into October, after an early, heavy snowfall blanketed the high country along the Continental Divide, leaving a foot of snow, or more, on the highest peaks.

It’s not unusual for the Going-to-the-Sun Road to be closed over Logan Pass by an early snow. But usually, a return of warm weather over a few days allows the park to re-open the road.

However, that hasn’t happened this time. Monday the west side of the park saw some clearing, but the cameras at Logan Pass showed the summit was still enveloped in snow and fog.

The road is already scheduled to close for the winter this coming weekend so we’ll keep you posted if the park is able to re-open it this week.
