Glacier National Park is closing roads and campgrounds in anticipation of a early fall snowstorm that’s expected to start in earnest Friday and run through the weekend.

The Many Glacier campground will close today (Thursday) and Two Medicine will close Friday. The St. Mary campground will stay open, but camping is not advised.

The Going-to-the-Sun Road from Jackson Glacier Overlook to Logan Pass has closed and the road on the west side was previously closed from Avalanche Creek to Logan Pass for road work.

More roads, particularly on the east side, could close as snow develops Friday night into Saturday, the Park is warning.

The National Weather Service is saying the higher terrain of Glacier will see from one to two feet of snow with blizzard-like conditions as winds will be 50 mph with gusts east of the divide up to 80 mph.

Winds in the Bad Rock Canyon should also be in the 50 mph-plus range.
