Getting ready for summer at the chalets
Glacier is working her way out from under the winter blanket of snow and we will be hiking the high country soon. We can’t wait for you to join us.
Vehicle reservations: Entry to Going to the Sun Road will require a vehicle reservation. Your chalet reservation acts as your vehicle reservation on the arrival date. At the park entrance you will need a copy of your chalet reservation with you in your vehicle, either a paper copy or downloaded to your device.
This year has turned into a high snow year up at the chalets. It is unlikely that Going to the Sun Road will be open when Granite Park Chalet does. We are making plans to shuttle Granite Park Chalet guests past the closure to the Loop trailhead until the road opens to regular traffic.
Sperry Chalets opening is on schedule for July 9. Expect snow at chalet elevations and higher well into July, so be ready with your waterproof boots.

Going to the Sun Road reminder
Glacier National Park is planning to issue entry tickets for vehicles using Going to the Sun Road again this year.
Your chalet reservation will act as a Sun Road entry ticket on the arrival date. Be prepared to show either a paper copy or an electronic copy on your device at the entry station. If you want vehicle access to Sun Road on other dates you will need an entry ticket available through recreation.gov

Thank you for your chalet enthusiasm
We had a great week last week helping so many people with your summer plans and chalet reservations. It was a good start to our year.
This was a record setting year for the volume of reservation requests received. We appreciate the eagerness and attention, the disappointing part is we could only grant reservations to one out of every four requests sent in. With demand for these tiny hotels growing every year we are saddened that we must turn down more and more wonderful people every year.
If you would like to keep trying for a reservation this year, we do expect a handful of reservations will change plans or cancel. There is no way to know when this might happen so patience and persistence will help you. Any opening from cancellation is available first come first served to the next requester, there is no waiting list.

We are excited about planning another summer of fun with everyone again this week. As we open up our reservations for the new year we know that there will be a lot happy people that can look forward to chalet adventures. We also sadly know that our tiny hotels are so popular that we are unable to host everyone that wishes to join us.
Here are some tips and reminders to help you:
- Being as flexible as you possibly can with your reservation request will improve your chances of getting a reservation.
- We reply to all requests with an Email and successful reservations will also receive a posted statement. Please make sure your Email address is correct, check your spam filters and junk mail if you are not seeing us in your inbox.
- Thank you for being patient as we work our way through the request queue, it is normal to expect a delay of several days before you hear back from us. We will update the availability calendar periodically to show our progress, but be aware that while we are backlogged this week the availability calendar will not be accurate.
