Seasonal Highlights: Unlike Utah’s other national parks, Bryce Canyon receives plenty of snow, making it a popular cross-country ski area. The park’s 2½-mi Fairyland Ski Loop is marked but ungroomed, as is the 5-mi Paria Loop, which runs through ponderosa forests into long, open meadows. Snowshoes are provided for free during ranger-led snowshoe hikes. You can snowshoe on the rim trails, but the Park Service discourages their use below the rim.

Top Activities: Snowshoeing, cross-country skiing
