Take a break from your downhill skis and have a Glacier day. Head through the west entrance of Glacier National Park to gaze upon beautiful Lake McDonald surrounded by snowy peaks. If you feel adventurous, drive to the North end of the Lake and go for a hike, snowshoe or cross-country ski along closed Going-to-the-Sun Road. In the evening, stop by the Belton Chalet’s Restaurant & Tap Room in West Glacier to hear the tunes of Brent Jameson and enjoy something delicious.
