I'm thinking to fly to Calgary (from the Netherlands) and then to go to Chief Mountain to start there the CDT.
But can I take food with me from Calgary easily accross the border? And can I send all my maps and so on from Canada  in maildrops to places along the trail? And where can I get the permit for Glacier? Not at the border , I think. 
I  don't know if this gives to much trouble. 
Who can give me advice?
