Enjoy Winter in the Grand Canyon
The South Rim is open year round, but the North Rim has limited access from mid-October until mid-May. Learn about winter activities here.
With an elevation spanning from around 2000 feet to over 8000 feet, the Grand Canyon experiences a variety of weather conditions. The quiet North Rim is higher in elevation, and hence cooler, than the more popular South Rim. And as you traverse down inside the canyon, the temperature increases, sometimes to over 100 F.
