Excitement is building in the Glacier region because plowing operations inside Glacier National Park have officially begun. Plowing the Going-to-the-Sun Road is a monumental task that usually takes about ten weeks, depending on weather and snowpack. The iconic alpine highway is considered one of the most difficult roads in America to plow and typically does not open until the third week of June. Sections of the road remain closed while the plows are working, but during times they are not working, the road is usually open to hikers and bikers. Biking the road before it opens to vehicle traffic is an amazing way to experience Glacier.
