The Going to the Sun Road will open tomorrow morning -

Except for during World War II, this is the latest opening of the 
road. "The latest openings came on June 28, 2002, when the road 
remained buried by late-season snows, and July 1, 2007, when leftover 
damage from a fall storm slowed the spring opening. "

Sections of the road had to be replowed 5 times this spring due to 
large late season storms and avalanches. -
