Routes / Re: Parks Peaks and Praires ?

In 1992 I was in Glacier National Park and East Glacier got a foot of snow on August 22 (Great Falls got 8 inches that day). This is unusual. However, about a week ago (9/7) Red Lodge, the Beartooth Highway and Yellowstone got a snowfall. This is not that unusual. The flip side is that nice weather can also last through much of October. In general, though, the higher elevations may see colder weather and snow starting sometime in September.

An equally serious concern is that if you wait too long in the summer you run the risk of being detoured by wildfires, or having to cycle through smoke. Early summer is probably the ideal time for the peaks portion of the ride - just my opinion, but I've lived in Montana for 30 years.
