More information on this year’s snow removal challenges in Glacier Park . . .
The chorus of whirring snowplows in Glacier National Park joined western Montana’s spring interlude this week as crews began the annual work of forging through deep snow along Going-to-the-Sun Road.
Plowing on the 50-mile Sun Road began April 2, according to park spokeswoman Denise Germann. Crews immediately encountered between 12 and 30 inches of snow and up to a half-foot of ice on the first two miles of road beyond Lake McDonald Lodge . . .
“The region around Glacier National Park has definitely been making gains in the last month,” Domonkos said.
Measurement data show that as of April 1, basin totals for the entire North Fork of the Flathead River are 111 percent of average . . .
