Fabulous views along the way make this well worth a visit. Chalet itself is bare bones, what one expects given it's location. Go with the expectation that you are there for the scenery and not for amenities. We paid extra for linens; mattresses are old and bunks creaky. I would happily have paid more for food options that aren't all freeze dried. We hiked the Highline trail to the Chalet and the Loop trail down - latter doesn't have much scenery to speak of, hiking through trees so you don't see much. Former has much nicer views, though part of the view is looking down on the GTS road, which doesn't exactly make you feel you are in a remote location! We had hoped to go up through Swiftcurrent Pass, but snow still on that trail made as switch plans. Somewhat by surprise though there is almost no cell phone reception in the park, there was reception at the chalet. Need to reserve early as the rooms fill up soon after reservations open in the fall.
