The Hungry Horse News reports that Glacier National Park will start the annual spring plowing of roads next week. On the west side, crews are scheduled to start plowing the Camas Road on April 1. Once the Camas Road is plowed, crews will then shift to the Going-to-the-Sun Road. Plowing the Sun Road takes about two-and-half to three months. Last year the snow pack was well below average and the road opened to Logan Pass on June 19. The year before that saw a record snow pack and the road didn’t open until early July. This year’s snowpack is about average, despite an El Nino winter, which usually means warmer and drier conditions. Read the full story here.
