Excerpts from the article:

T’S LIKELY YOU’VE SEEN PHOTOS of the bright, colorful hoodoos of Bryce Canyon National Park — those ancient rock spires shooting up hundreds of feet toward the sky — but there’s no substitute for walking among them...

Bryce Canyon is open to visitors 24/7, every day of the year. Its Visitor Center — where you can obtain park information and backcountry permits, view exhibits and a film, browse / purchase books and maps, and clean yourself up if you’re road tripping and camping — is open daily except for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Day.

The fun doesn’t stop in winter. With a fresh coating of fine Utah powder, the landscape takes on a whole new aura, and it’s time to break out the snowshoes and skis. There are some ranger-led snowshoe hikes in which gear is provided; you can also bring your own or rent in nearby Bryce Canyon City (on Highway 63 just north of the park entrance).

The article also gives detailed info on park trails.
