Bryce Canyon National Park in Winter

Bryce Canyon is even more beautiful in the snow.

Because of its high elevation climate, weather at Bryce Canyon through autumn, winter, and spring can be highly variable. Snowstorms in October are not unusual, yet there are also many sunny and pleasant autumn days during the month. When the snow does comes, it speckles the hoodoos and canyons and creates another dimension in the mosaic of red rock and green pine.

Most of these winter views can be seen by hopping in and out of a warm car at the various overlooks. However, for the more adventurous, get your snowshoes and trail crampons on to explore the trails. Snowshoes are available for free when you join a park ranger on a winter hike.
