“Ski Touring Paradise”
Reviewed 11 February 2017

Not much more to say than Glacier is the best ski touring destination. Great terrain and awesome snow.
Although accommodations are a bit tough for those wanting luxury (you need to go to Golden or Revelstoke), the rest of us stay at Wheeler hut.

“Not accessible at the end of May. Nice visitor's center and views.”
Reviewed 18 November 2016

As there was too much snow, the entire park was closed at the end of May. The visitor's center however was very nice, informative and an very nice ranger answered all of our questions. The views of the snowy mountains was the nicest from the parking lot of the visitor's center.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 22 October 2016

In October, many of the hiking trails including the walks along various boardwalks in Glacier National Park, along the Trans-Canada Highway, were already closed. We've done these in the past during summer season and they are very scenic and beautiful. The drive through the park is very pretty.

“Oops it was closed”
Reviewed 21 October 2016 via mobile

We only got as far as Lake McDonald because they had 22 inches of snow at the higher elevations the week before so rather than plow they decided to close the roads a few weeks early . We could drive up to a trail but than it was closed for maintenance. Even the visitor center and bathrooms were closed. Very disappointed.

Lake Macdonald is spectacular and you could hike a little along the river.
