End of summer
Wrapping the season at the chalets is so bittersweet. Though our feet are sore from the hiking and we have a winter to make it through before we see those mountaintops again, we can feel good about how awesome the summer of 2023 has been.
We had a great time on the mountain this year, thanks to everyone that could join us. I hope you had as much fun as we did.
Happy trails. See you in the new year.

Gunsight Pass Closed
The Gunsight Pass trail will be closed from September 4 through 16, from Gunsight Pass to Going to the Sun Road, including the Gunsight Lake campground.
This closes access to Sperry Chalet from the east for the remainder of our season. We still have great hiking to do though. If you just gotta see the continental divide we can hike as far as Gunsight Pass from the chalet, plus the amazing hike to Sperry glacier. If you are visiting this week be sure to bring your warm evening wear and keep an eye on the forecast in case of rain.

Sperry Chalet is open
Some people look at the Sperry Trail and think "that looks challenging", others look at the Sperry Trail and think "that looks fun", and still others look to that trail and think "A nice grilled cheese this afternoon would be lovely."
No matter your trail mindset, Sperry Chalet is open and ready for you. The dining room has hot soup, homemade bread, and cool lemonade. The mountain goats have been practicing their most picturesque poses. The mountains could not be more beautiful. We can’t wait for you to come up!
The trails are in great condition. The Sperry Trail has no obstacles. The Sperry Glacier Trail has the bridges installed over the water crossings. And the Gunsight Pass trail has only minor snowfields to skirt around; but be careful at the Ellen Wilson water crossing, that spot can get you wet no matter what the conditions are.
Happy hiking and be safe out there!
March 1, 2023 - Wednesday
in 2023 Glacier National Park will be requiring vehicle reservations for entering Going to the Sun Road and other areas of the park.
Your chalet reservation confirmation will act as your Sun Road vehicle reservation on the arrival date.
Have a copy of your reservation confirmation in your vehicle to present along with an id. Either a paper or electronic copy will be fine, but be advised to download it to your device, do not count on a signal being available at the entrance station.
Complete details about GNP vehicle reservations for the upcoming summer are here: https://www.nps.gov/glac/planyourvisit/gtsrticketedentry.htm
Without a service reservation along Going to the Sun Road, or to enter on a date different than your chalet arrival, you will need to get a vehicle reservation through recreation.gov.

Starting our 2023 adventures
We are once again humbled to see how many people share our passion for the glacier backcountry. We are simultaneously thrilled with how many adventures are going to happen on the mountain this summer, and deeply disappointed that these little hotels can’t host all who want to visit. We are sorry if we could not award your reservation.
At the moment, both chalets have sold out. If you are interested in potential openings from cancellation the availability page of this website is the best way to take a quick look. Openings will be by chance from here on, there is no specific time to check other than at your whim.
January 6, 2023 - Friday
8:00 AM Mountain time zone, Monday January 9, 2023.
Here on this website. Navigate to the reservations page.
Hows it work?
First come first served. Visit the website, fill in the form with the details of your party and available stay dates, hit submit. We handle them in the order received. It may take us a while to work through them all. Expect a reply email in the following few days, it will come from: [email protected]
Got any hints?
These are small hotels with high demand. Give us all the possible dates of stay in your first request. By the time we have a chance to answer the question: ‘what about this other date?’ it will also be sold out.
After submitting you will get a passcode and url. Make note of these if you want to edit your request while it is in queue.
The process will take some time, thanks for your patience. We will be periodically updating the availability calendars to give you an idea of our progress, but it will not be accurate until we get caught up to the request queue.
Can I call for a reservation?
Yes, but, the only thing we can do by phone is enter the online form on your behalf. If you have an internet connection the process is a little faster and more accurate to enter the details yourself.
Our office line is: 888-345-2649. Expect it to be busy next week and we may not be able to check messages very promptly.
