Winter In Bryce Canyon

Winter is one of the most colorful times of the year here in Bryce Canyon National Park. The canyon’s pink and coral rock formations contrast beautifully with white snow, evergreens and blue sky. The air is crisp and pure and you can see for hundreds of miles. An added benefit is that unlike the Salt Lake Valley, Bryce Canyon has some of the cleanest air in the lower 48 states.
The summertime crowds are replaced by incredible quiet and solitude. The park itself is open all year round and is accessible by automobile; however sections of the road may be temporarily closed after a heavy snowfall.
Every year we host a Bryce Canyon Winter Festival every President’s Day weekend. Winter activities at Ruby’s Inn include sleigh rides, snowmobiling, horseback riding, cross country skiing, snowshoeing and ice skating.


  1. We are driving down to Bryce on Saturday, Jan 28 from Salt Lake City. We’ve never been to Utah before and we are wondering if we have to have an SUV to safely navigate the roads. Thanks. Susan
