Weather in Bryce Canyon National Park

Perched at over 8,000 ft in elevation, Bryce towers above the surrounding canyon-laden countryside. Characterized by a notable variance in weather conditions, it is wise to wear layers that can be changed to suit the temperature extremes. Hats and skin protection are recommended year-round, as high-altitude sun, and unforeseen wind or precipitation can materialize any day of the year. Be sure to double-check the area’s forecast as your adventure draws near.

Spring and Fall tend to be pleasant, with daytime highs in the 50’s and 60’s, and evening lows around or below freezing. Summer high temperatures peak around 80 degrees, with evenings in the upper 40’s. Winter days might barely climb above freezing, and nights can drop to near or below zero. March is historically the snowiest month, but winter storms might frequent the plateau from October through April. Afternoon thunderstorms tend to arise in mid- to late summer.

Could not have asked for a better experience.

23 days ago

Nolan was simply unbelievable. It was the best hiking trip I have ever taken and he played such a large part in it. I could not possibly have asked for a better experience or a better guide. He is so good at his job. I would recommend him to family.

It was amazing!

Nolan emailed us in advance about the hike, which was appreciated. He was knowledgeable and professional. He planned the perfect hike for us to see the best of Bryce without the crowds. It was amazing! Our lunch was delicious and in the most beautiful setting. We highly recommend hiking in Bryce with Nolan as your guide!

I'd highly recommend.

Nolan was excellent. He was conscious of our pace, careful to not be too slow or fast, and took time to tell us things about the park that we wouldn't have learned otherwise. We had a great lunch after our hike that he prepared that was great too. I'd highly recommend.
