Zinke presses for quick restoration of Sperry Chlaet in Glacier NP

COLUMBIA FALLS — Rebuilding Sperry Chalet “as expeditiously as they can,” under budget and ahead of schedule, is a commitment made by Secretary of State Ryan Zinke Saturday after a meeting with Glacier Superintendent Jeff Mow and Doug Mitchell, executive director of Glacier National Park Conservancy.

As part of a wide-ranging press conference here Saturday, Zinke said public comments overwhelmingly support rebuilding the popular backcountry chalet’s dormitory, burned in last summer's Sprague Fire, as close as possible to its original state while making some upgrades. He proposes using a mix of public and private dollars to complete the work, adding that he is prepared to commit “whatever it takes” in federal funding to restore the structure.
