Reservations

We are happy to add shuttle service to your chalet reservation.

While we can make last minute arrangements for rides, we think that planning ahead makes for a safer and more enjoyable chalet adventure. We would appreciate at least a week's notice for your transportation reservation. Planning ahead helps promote safety, efficiency, and lower costs.

Parking

Free Parking for chalet guests at the Glacier Outdoor Center in West Glacier.

The parking area has shelter from the weather, restrooms and a gift shop.

Parking your own car at chalet trailheads overnight is allowed; however, parking space is limited. On busy days and times it may be impossible to find space. Our chalet shuttle is here to help.

You may also park at the Apgar Visitor Center or the St. Mary Visitor Center and use the free park service shuttle to your trailhead.

Arrival

Getting an early start on the trail is important. Start your hike with cool morning air and give yourself more time to enjoy the trail and handle delays. We recommend the morning shuttle schedule for arriving at the chalet and the afternoon schedule for your departure.

Departure

You should plan ahead for your chalet departure so as not to miss your scheduled shuttle stop.

It can be difficult to estimate hiking times on Glacier trails. Even experienced hikers regularly encounter delays from weather, animals, minor injury or rest stops. The most common delays come from discovering spectacular views or interesting encounters that need a little more time to appreciate.

If you miss a scheduled trailhead pickup. Use the free Going to the Sun Road Shuttle operated by the National Park Service and go to the Apgar Visitor Center. Our shuttle van will come back and meet you at the visitor center to deliver you to your vehicle at the Glacier Outdoor Center.
