13 Jul 11 - With wilderness trails still covered with several feet of snow, park officials announced that Montana's Going-to-the-Sun Road would be opened to the public on July 13, the latest the road has ever opened due to weather.

Park officials have attributed the late opening to the high elevation snow that continued into June, according to Missoulian.com. The heavy winter snowpack had caused avalanches, adding to the job of removing snow from the mountain road.

Hikers are advised to use caution due to unseen holes and snow bridges that can collapse. Highline Trail will remain closed and there is no projected opening date at this time.
