The plow crews are making quick progress on Going-to-the-Sun Road and the opening of park lodging properties is right around the corner.  A few familiar faces will be seen leading operations at GPI properties for the 2015 season. Todd Ashcraft, previously with Lake McDonald Lodge for 15+ years, will be the new location manager for operations in West Glacier and Apgar and Helen Roberts, who spent the past seven seasons managing Many Glacier Hotel, will be the location manager for operations in St. Mary.

Glacier Park Inc is also offering a special spring discount to our Friends of Glacier.  Book their Local’s Rate, starting at $115 per night for an early season getaway! Get into Glacier before the summer crowds and enjoy wide open trails or a pedal on the Going to the Sun Road.  Call 406.892.2525 and ask for the “Glacier Conservancy Local’s Rate”.
