Bryce Canyon Lodge in Utah is open this winter for a special new pilot program offering limited facilities this winter in the Sunset Building which will be open from November 8 through March 24.
Winter Stay in Bryce Canyon
The Sunset Building of Bryce Canyon Lodge is located on the brim of the canyon. Here, you can discover the magic of winter in the Bryce Canyon National Park and enjoy a comfortable warm night’s stay at a reasonable price.
All rooms are $120/night for double occupancy, and the program includes a light continental breakfast as part of your stay. There is a $10 charge for additional guests and rollaway beds and cribs are allowed. Rollaways can be rented for $12 from the office.
Bryce Canyon National Park Possible Road Closures
While the park is open 24 hours per day throughout the year, inclement winter weather may temporarily result in road closures until plowing is completed and conditions are deemed safe for visitor traffic.
Other Benefits of an Off Season Visit
The park recommends visiting Bryce in the “off-season” to avoid the crowds that flock to Bryce Canyon June through September. October through May offers opportunities to enjoy cooler temperatures.
Visits in the fall offer stunning fall foliage, the spring promises wildflowers, while winter features snow blanketing the plateau. It’s the perfect setting for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.
Winter is also an ideal opportunity for photographers with winter landscapes contrasting crimson-colored hoodoos (irregularly-shaped pillars of rock left standing from the forces of erosion) and dazzling white snow.
Main Lodge Is Closed
While the Sunset Building will be open throughout the winter season, the Main Lodge, dining room and gift shop will remain closed until March 25.
Before your arrival, check the park’s website to check for winter advisories or other alerts that may affect your visit.
