I understand the issue but reading the “friends of glacier” Facebook page, this is happening to a ton of people. they had to know prior to 2 weeks before travel was to begin.

Re: how can they do this?

I wonder how many people will be effected like this? Is it because they can’t hire enough workers?

Re: 2021 summer trip questions

Re: HockeyRef Hike

Pete, saw where highline opened. You think we're good to do hockey ref? Haven't heard swiftcurrent pass conditions. Actually in flight now & land in Kalispell in about an hour. If you're going to be in the Many Glacier area let me know. Would love to finally meet you. Tks. Tony
