Everything really depends on conditions on the ground. According to Ellen Blickhan of Glacier NP, "Probably our snowiest months are January and February, but we can get in big storms through June!" She also recommends checking out the park's website for information on average temperatures and snowfall accumulation (http://www.nps.gov/glac/planyourvisit/weather.htm), plus visiting the NOAA weather site (http://www.noaa.gov/wx.html) for storm predictions. There's also a link with more details about winter activities in Glacier at: http://home.nps.gov/applications/glac/ski/xcski.htm, and don't forget to check out avalanche info for conditions in the backcountry: http://www.glacieravalanche.org. Hope this helps, and thanks, Ellen!
