Time for my annual update. For 2011 thr road will open across the park no earlier than June 17, 2011, and I doubt it will happen then. Construction is mostly on the lower sections of road, and the rebuild of the alpine stretch is nearly complete.
It is snowing in the alpine today, and was yesterday. Snowpack in the park is 200-300% of normal, so it will likely be a late opening this year. The Logan Pass Visitor Center roof is visible, but that is about all that is sticking out of the snow!
Flooding is also an issue now, and crews are active keeping culverts clear.....
I'll try to provide more info as opening gets closer!
