Snowshoe Hikes Will Begin Jan 2 At Bryce Canyon

The Bryce Canyon National Park Visitor Center will be closed on Saturday, New Years Day. The remainder of the park will be open.

Guided snowshoe hikes will begin on Jan 2. People interested in participating should register at the Visitor Center.

Unlike Utah’s other national parks, Bryce Canyon is located at a high elevation and it receives deep winter snow. Snow sports are popular in the park, including snowshoeing and cross country skiing. Snowmobiling is not allowed in the park but is popular in the nearby area.

Bryce Canyon is the venue for a popular winter festival in February, over President’s Day Weekend. It offers cross country ski races, archery clinics, archery biathlon competitions, free snowshoe tours, free clinics in photography, snow sculpture, kids' events, entertainment and more.
