At 8,000+ feet February snow normally blankets the gorgeous red rock landscape that dominates Bryce Canyon and Red Canyon.  It's the perfect time of year to take advantage of all the fun activities at the Bryce Canyon Winter Festival, but also to experience all that Bryce Canyon Country has to offer. There's nothing quite like the quiet of winter as you cross country ski or snowshoe past the hoodoos and canyon plateaus and rims. These snowy adventures are available all winter long, even if you can't make it to the Winter Festival.  There are many lodging operations in Bryce Canyon Country that can host you as you enjoy all of these outdoor activities and more.

In past years, the ski archery competition has been one of the most popular events at the Winter Festival, typically taking place on Sunday. The cross country ski races will be held on Monday.

Enjoy everything the Bryce Canyon Winter Festival has to offer, along with the breathtaking views and the unmatched experience of Bryce Canyon in winter. Red rock hoodoos covered in a blanket of white snow beneath the crisp, blue skies...there's nothing quite like it.   Learn more about winter in the Bryce Canyon Country region.
