Among the wide array of unique experiences we can enjoy in Montana, skiing on Fourth of July weekend is one of the best.
Summer is here but winter’s presence is lingering in the high-alpine landscape of Glacier National Park. At Logan Pass, elevation 6,640 feet, there are still ample powder turns to enjoy. But hurry — they’re fading fast.
Strap on the climbing skins or snowshoes and take the skis for some sunburst adventures. Just behind the visitor center, follow the trail to Hidden Lake for the closest, most convenient turns. For the more hardcore riders, climb the slopes of Clements (elevation 8,760 feet) and Reynolds (9,125 feet) for high-angle slopes.
Be aware of snow conditions and follow proper safety precautions. Also take care to avoid stomping through the alpine meadow’s sensitive vegetation, moss and groundcover as you trudge uphill.
