Spring Break Travel Guide: West Glacier, Montana

If you haven’t seen it before, one of The Thrill’s favorite features is our Travel Guides. Today, I wanted to focus on my Zero Stoplight hometown, West Glacier, Montana with a humbling population of 198 people. I know, right!? Slow down ya breeders!

When you google West Glacier, my house comes up. See the red thing in the background? Also, that red bus is what I took to school when it was raining. It was driven by a man named Jolly.

When you google West Glacier, my house comes up. That maroon building in the background. Also, that red bus is driven by a man named Jolly.

Anyway, I have a feeling a lot of you are stopping by this break, and I’ve got your guide for what to do and what to bring after the jump!

What to Pack:

  • Snow shoes My dad generously plows snow for locals, but he only handles the roads and driveways, so you’re gonna want to invest in a solid pair of snow shoes. It’s also your best best for getting into the park this time of year, since the roads are closed due to avalanches! My friend can probably hook you up. He knows a guy.
  • An oxygen tank Elevations are high in Big Sky Country, people! I don’t want any of you passing out before we even get to my house!
  • A water purifier The pipes have a habit of freezing, but the river is still flowing! We’re going to want to purify it before we drink it. I don’t want to send you home with a parasite!

What to do:

  • Race Sticks down at the Old Bridge It is fun.
  • Put pennies on the train tracks I’m not going to be home this break, but I asked my little brother Connor if he would be willing to show you how to do this and he said sure. He’s going to be the only person under fifty in town, so he’s your best bet for a good time.
  • Go on the Internet- We just got it this summer and I’m pretty pumped about it.
  • Play in the Teepee on the playground of my old elementary school To get to the school, all you have to do is cross the train tracks which are just across the road from my house. Don’t worry, Connor will show you the way. There are only thirty kids who go to the school though, so make sure to only go once school lets out, or you’ll stick out like a sore thumb!
    This is all true.Welcome to the WG, bitch.

    This was my school. Again, that building you can see the roof of in the very background is my house.
    Welcome to the WG, bitch.

    If none of this sounds like a good time to you, then yeah, okay, I get it.

  1. Love the line…”Slow down ya breeders!” I grew up there, I love it and I know readers will too. My daughters GS troop is heading there soon. :)
    And my family will take care of yours when you arrive. Enjoy!

  3. obviously like your web site but you need to take
    a look at the spelling on several of your posts. A number of them are
    rife with spelling issues and I find it very troublesome to tell the truth then again I will
    certainly come again again.
