Bryce Canyon


Climate and Temperatures

Best time to travel / Season
The main travel season for South Utah in general is the summer! Highest temperatures can be expected during these months as well as high prices for accommodation. Best time to travel is late spring and early fall when temperatures are moderate and the park is not crowded.
Park elevations reach 9,100 feet (2778 meters). People with heart or respiratory problems should be especially careful not to overexert themselves. Winters are typically long and cold, with an average of 96 inches of snow. Summers are mild and ideal for hiking and camping. The National Park Service recommends visiting Bryce in the "off-season." Sixty percent of the visitors come to Bryce Canyon June through September, but October through May is a fantastic time to enjoy the park. In fall and spring, there are fewer people, cooler temperatures, and spectacular fall foliage and wildflower displays. In winter, deep snow blankets the plateau and provides excellent cross-country skiing and snowshoeing opportunities. Bryce Canyon's winter landscapes stagger the imagination, as dazzling white snow contrasts beautifully with crimson-colored hoodoos.

Climate and Temperatures
When visiting the park in July and August make sure to have enough water with you. Averages: January's highs around 40 F (4 C)and lows around 9 F (-12 C). July/August's highs around 80 F (27 C) and lows around 46 F (8 C).
