This year Glacier National Park has had near record snowfalls and a very cool spring. That leaves a huge amount of snow for thru-hikers to contend with.

How much snow? Well one hiker recently spent a weekend in the backcountry and had to use ice axe, crampons and snow shoes. I’m packing two out of three of those items. I’ll pick up the snow shoes in Montana if it looks like they will be needed.

Good thing Kevin and I have experience with lots of snow!
