Winter Festival in Bryce Canyon


The upcoming Winter Festival in Bryce Canyon City is going to be delightful. The winter tradition takes place over President’s Day weekend and allows participants the rare opportunity of visiting a snow-capped Bryce Canyon. The towering red rock spires and contrasting white snow combine to create stunning scenery in the giant natural amphitheater.

The ski races are just the beginning of the family-friendly activities happening both indoors and outdoors. The schedule includes kayaking tutorials, running clinics, dance classes, leather working, watercolor painting and photography.

This year the National Park Service is waiving the $25 per-car entry fee over the entire weekend into Bryce Canyon National Park. This will allow winter festival attendees to take part in ranger-led geology talks, snowshoe hikes, astronomy presentations and telescope viewings.
