I think the bus from Alamosa to Denver and the shuttle from East Glacier to Waterton/Chiefs Mt are a given.  Last year the best way to get from East Glacier to Denver was by Amtrak to Seattle and Alaska Air to Denver.  It is important to find discount airlines that will give reasonable one way fares a short time out.   Unfortunately, the fare structure changes all the time, and flying to Minneapolis and taking Amtrak the other way may be just as good next summer.  I don't remember the relative fares to Spokane; it may have been that the late night arrival time was not desirable.  
 East Glacier has an Avis counter, but one way rentals are not usually cost effective for one.  
Just because I thought of it, does not make this flip a good idea.

I see flights from Denver to Kalispell - then I guess you get a shuttle to East Glacier? Not cheap. Greyhound goes only to Whitefish, not sure how to get from there to East Glacier. > >> > Any Southbounders going about that time who are coming from Colorado and able to offer a shuttle?> >> > Anyone know of any other creative options (other than hitching)??> > Thanks,> > Melanie> >
