Thank you

We are very thankful for all the chalet enthusiasm we have seen this week, and we thrilled to meet so many people that will be hiking to Granite Park Chalet this summer. It's a bummer that this little hotel is not able to host everyone that wants to stay with us. If you could not get a reservation we are just as disappointed as you are, please check back periodically through the spring. Cancellations and changes do happen. Any openings will be available first come, first served.

Happy Hiking!

Merry Christmas

Our favorite national park and one of our favorite chalets had a challenging year in 2017, but we remain joyful for our friends and thankful for our blessings. We are looking forward to starting a new year and having more adventures. From the backcountry of Glacier National Park we wish you a Merry Christmas.

Looking forward to 2018

As winter settles in we find ourselves looking forward to next summer at Granite Park Chalet. If you would like to join us, here is some information to start your planning.

We will have more information soon, including the 2018 fares and tips for reservation success.

Closed for the season

It was a hot and dry summer, it was a busy summer. We got see lots of friends, new and old, and we got to do some incredible hiking. It was amazing to see how many people had a chance to visit us and enjoy Glacier National Park.

We are saddened by the loss of our companion, Sperry Chalet. We still have plans to make and decisions to reach before we can move forward. Expect to see Granite Park Chalet reservations open for the 2018 season in January. We will publish exact dates and details here this fall as we learn them.

We hope to see you and your hiking buddies up in the backcountry again next summer.

Happy Trails

The 2017 Granite Park Team sends their heartfelt wishes to the Sperry Chalet Crew, Belton Chalets, Inc, the firefighters, and the public, in the loss of the GNRY Sperry Hotel.

Evacuation Order in Effect

Evacuation Order in Effect Between Apgar Loop Road and Logan Pass.
All park entrances remain open. The Going-to-the-Sun Road is closed between Apgar Loop Road and Logan Pass. Logan Pass is accessible via the St. Mary Entrance. Apgar Village, Campground, and Picnic Area are open.

Granite Park Chalet is open and is not in harms way. We are ready to serve you.

The Highline Trail from Logan Pass is currently the best route in and out of the chalet. The Swiftcurrent Pass Trail is also open to Many Glacier. The Loop Trail is not accessible.

If you are trying to reach Granite Park Chalet from West Glacier, plan to add about 2.5 hours of travel time around the park on Highway 2 to the east entrance at St Mary. Please contact our office if our shuttle can help you.

Lake McDonald Evacuation Warning

The National Park Service has issued an evacuation warning on Saturday, September 2, from the south end of Lake McDonald north to Logan Pass along the Going to the Sun Road corridor. This is in response to potential fire activity from the Sprague fire.

Granite Park Chalet is not in harms way and remains open and accessible. We are prepared to stay open even if the fire should cause the closing of Going to the Sun Road on the west side. Granite Park Chalet will still have east side access on the Highline Trail from Logan Pass and the Swiftcurrent Pass trail from Many Glacier.

For your travel into Granite Park Chalet this week, we recommend using the Highline Trail and Logan Pass as your entry point. In a worse case scenario it will add an additional two and a half hours of travel time to go from West Glacier to Logan Pass via Highway 2 and the east entrance to Going to the Sun Road. Please contact our reservation office if we can assist with our shuttle.

It would be best if you do not park your vehicle at the Loop. Should Sun Road close during your stay at Granite Park Chalet, that may interfere with your ability to egress from the park. If you prefer to hike the Loop Trail, shuttles are available from Logan Pass and park visitor centers that can bring you to the trailhead. Be mindful that your egress may require a different trail.
