I was issued a permit for a 4 day backpack in Glacier over the labor day weekend for 8 people (6 spots are remaining).

Here is the Schedule
Saturday Aug 31st Flight in
Sunday Sept. 1st Backpack to SPE
Monday Sept. 2nd Backpack to ELL
Tuesday Sept. 3rd Backpack to GUN
Wednesday Sept. 4th Backpack out to road Hitch ride up Going to Sun Road

Info on backpacking in Glacier NP
http://www.nps.gov/glac/planyourvisit/upload/Backcountry-Guide.pdf
Also snow can occur any time in Glacier therefore we have to be prepared for the inclement weather.


 

Please contact me prior sending money or booking a reservations to determine if there is room left on the permit. There will be a cost of $100 (incl. PayPal fees) per person as a NON-refundable down payment. Another method of securing a spot is to book both your Airfare and your hotel, I will thus consider you committed. After that all of the remaining costs will be split between the participants, carpools, etc, etc.

Any additional questions please let me know I will post them to this board and try to keep this as updated as possible.

      Hi Justin, Would you mind letting me know how much the airfare cost?

      June 26, 2013

  • Vincent Edward O.

    I found the itinerary. I've done this trip before. The first day is a bit of a hump but the rest are easy and through a fantastic part of the park. I'm a maybe at this point.

  • Vincent Edward O.

    Great place to backpack. I did Many Glacier to Waterton two summers ago. Please post your itinerary (camp codes) so I can tell how difficult it will be.

    Hi Eric - How do you feel about people only staying for the backpacking portion and then heading out after that?

    June 25, 2013

    • Eric H.

      I don't have a problem with only staying for the backpacking portion. It makes it easier on me.

    Just checked airfare...too high

    June 24, 2013

  • Eric H.

    If you have any questions please confirm I have spots left before making a reservation.

    June 24, 2013

  • Tricia K.

    What hotel are you staying at the first night and what airport do you suggest?

    June 24, 2013

    • Eric H.

      We are flying into Kalispell and staying in Whitefish for the first night. Myself and a my Guest will be staying with a friend.

      June 24, 2013

    • Eric H.

      I would suggest the first night people stay in White But I know people are coming into town from all over.
