Starting in April 2021, the Trans-Canada Highway (Hwy. 1) will have scheduled closures at Golden B.C., east of Mount Revelstoke and Glacier national parks due to scheduled highway improvements. Both parks remain open to visitors. Visit the Kicking Horse Canyon Project for more information.
To avoid disappointment, we recommend that visitors planning a trip to Glacier National Park during the spring and autumn shoulder seasons (April, May, June, September, October) contact us by phone or e-mail for the latest information on facility openings and closings.
