Weather for West Glacier Montana Forecast

West Glacier is a small, unincorporated town in eastern Flathead County and is the western entrance to Glacier National Park, so the name describes its locations at the southern tip of Lake McDonald.

Known to many as the "Crown of the Continent", Glacier National Park was established in 1910. It is a land of mountain ranges carved by prehistoric ice rivers. It features alpine meadows, deep forests, waterfalls, about 50 glistening glaciers and 200 sparkling lakes. Relatively few miles of road exist in the park's 1,600 square miles of picturesque landscape, thus preserving its primitive and unspoiled beauty enlivened by a spring and summer profusion of wildflowers. Modern tourist visitation began in the late 1800's with the arrival of the Great Northern Railroad's Empire Builder Line and hasn't slowed much since. This early interest in the area left Glacier with over 350 structures now listed on the National Register of Historic Sites and six designated National Historic Landmarks. Dedicated as the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park in 1932, this boarder-spanning national park system celebrates the longstanding peace and friendship between the US & Canada and continues to be the only one of its kind in the world. Glacier National Park and Waterton Lakes National Park have both been designated as Biosphere Reserves and were recognized in 1995 together as a World Heritage Site.

West Glacier is located only 30 miles northeast of Kalispell and 140 miles north of Missoula.
