Glacier National Park’s Chief Mountain Road is now open on the east side to motor vehicles.

The border crossing is not open, however.

The Sun Road is open to motor vehicles to Rising Sun on the east side and Lake McDonald Lodge on the west side.

There are no hiker restrictions on the east side of the Sun Road, but no bikes are allow due to ice and snow beyond the gate.

The Camas, Two Medicine and Many Glacier roads are closed to motor vehicles but open to hiking and biking.

Park plows on the west side of the Sun Road had pioneered to Alder Creek as of late last week. Alder Creek is about 6 miles from Logan Pass.

This weekend is expected to be cold and wet, with rain and snow.

The Park’s road status web page has been intermittent at best this season. Glacier is aware of the problem and is working to fix it, spokeswoman Gina Kerzman said.
