Going to Glacier National Park? You’ll need a reservation to drive Going-to-the-Sun Road

KALISPELL, Mont. — Park officials in Montana have made additional reservation tickets available this week for Going-to-the-Sun Road in Glacier National Park after receiving complaints that the park was selling out too quickly.

The temporary ticketed entry system for the iconic 50-mile (80-kilometer) alpine road was announced last month to manage congestion and avoid potential closures at the park because of the coronavirus pandemic and road construction.

Park officials have said reservations for June sold out within minutes after they were made available despite visitors having a rolling 60-day window to reserve tickets that are made available each morning. Officials said at one point more than 10,000 people were on the park’s online portal, more than three times the number of available tickets.
