Re: 2021 Season Opening News

The Hidden Lake trail is closed at the visitor center and the Highline isn’t open yet, so maybe that has something to do with the sparse crowds. There’s really nowhere to hike up there right now.

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

The weekend kinda sucked from a personal point of view. My brother-in-law, "Bobby", passed away at home Saturday night. My sister Vickie was with him. So I'm glad of that. Her daughter and family live just down the road. It was a long battle with lung cancer and other related issues. Last week afte...

Re: 2021 Transportation

We hike out from GUN on the 9th, then start our Chalet reservation on the 10th. So we will stay somewhere on the east side on the night of the 9th, then shuttle to Logan from St Mary on the 10th. We will be able to validate our return ticket for the 12th on the morning of the 10th. I would call the ...

Re: Corridor Management Plan

Interesting:
The Two Medicine, Many Glacier and Polebridge areas may experience traffic restrictions due to congestion.
This has always been the case. Those areas close when the parking lots fill.

Re: 2021 Backcountry Permit Applications: Date for submittal now March 17

So yesterday I got my second and final permit. I had submitted two permit applications, one for a 2-3 night trip within a one week date range, and the second for a 3 night trip anytime between August 1 and September 15, but in the notes I carved out the date range that I used for the first permit an...

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

Great photos, Pete! So nice to see the east side. Did you camp over there? The improvements to US89 look great and like you said, much safer. Were there many people out? Friday and Saturday were gorgeous days in Calgary with temps in the high 60’s low 70’s, but today we got 4-6 inches of wet snow. T...

Awesome, Jason! What a great itinerary. No better place to spend two nights than GLH. Will you be bringing the fishing pole?

Re: 2021 Backcountry Permit Applications: Date for submittal now March 17

If there are two people on the Camping Permit does that give the Permit Holders two Going to the Sun Road Passes? Good question. If I remember right, you provide the Rangers with the license plate numbers of the cars you will have parked at the trailhead, and they list them on the permit. I would h...

I think just Pete, Paul and Jason are left?
And me. But my backpacking buddy Tibber is allowing me to share in her good fortune. :arrow:

Hopefully others will come forward and let us know of their success.

The Chatters are having great permit success! Truly happy for you all. I’d be happy with any one of these itineraries.

So it’s been 3 weeks and no one here has a permit yet? Seems like a long time for no one to have heard back.

Re: 2021 Backcountry Permit Applications: Date for submittal now March 17

I haven't seen any of the sites disappear from the status, does anyone know if they have started to process applications? If they really have to go through over 10000 it will be a long wait until a likely rejection. I’ve been watching, too, and haven’t seen any movement. I’m specifically watching S...
