Closed for the season

The high country of Glacier National Park has once again blessed us with a rich summer of trails, vistas, encounters, and adventures. We are grateful for everyone that climbed that little hill in order to visit us.

The office will be on lite duty through the fall. We will be checking Email and messages if you need anything. Details about next years operating dates and fares will be available before the end of the year.

If you are interested in reservations for the 2023 season, reservations will open on January 9, 2023.

Be safe out there and start training now, the next hiking season is only 9 months away.

A Granite Park Chalet Update for guests & day hikers!

We are open to serve all who enter the high country of Granite Park Chalet!

Happy Hiking!

Getting ready for summer at the chalets

Glacier is working her way out from under the winter blanket of snow and we will be hiking the high country soon. We can’t wait for you to join us.

Vehicle reservations: Entry to Going to the Sun Road will require a vehicle reservation. Your chalet reservation acts as your vehicle reservation on the arrival date. At the park entrance you will need a copy of your chalet reservation with you in your vehicle, either a paper copy or downloaded to your device.

This year has turned into a high snow year up at the chalets. It is unlikely that Going to the Sun Road will be open when Granite Park Chalet does. We are making plans to shuttle Granite Park Chalet guests past the closure to the Loop trailhead until the road opens to regular traffic.

Sperry Chalets opening is on schedule for July 9. Expect snow at chalet elevations and higher well into July, so be ready with your waterproof boots.

Happy hiking
