Park plows clear the Going-to-the-Sun Road in this file photo.

Glacier Park plow crews made good progress last week. Crews on the Going-to-the-Sun Road were beyond Packerís Roost on the west side and were heading to the Loop as of presstime.

While plows are working, the hiker-biker access is limited to Moose Country. The road is closed to motor vehicles beyond Lake McDonald Lodge.

On the east side, the road was plowed to Rising Sun. The Two Medicine Road is currently being plowed as well, with the road closed to vehicles at the Park boundary.

In Many Glacier, the road is plowed, but the hiker biker access is to the T intersection because of construction on the many Glacier Hotel. The Camas Road is also plowed, but not open to motor vehicles. It keeps snowing in Glacier. The Park saw fresh snow Monday.
