Grand Canyon Skiing
If Grand Canyon Skiing brings to mind a vacation carving perfect turns from Grand Canyon Village to the Colorado River…we'll you're going to be disappointed. However, with elevations from 7,000 feet all the way to 9,000 feet there is some great cross-country skiing available on a good snow year and if the snow melts off there are quite a few other Grand Canyon Activities to choose from for a back-up plan. The North Rim offers the best snow pack, and therefore the best cross-country skiing, but the South Rim can be fun on the right day. The best places to ski are rim trails and forest service roads in Kaibab National Forest that go unused in the winter season. The North Kaibab Ranger District, South Kaibab Ranger district, Grand Canyon Trails Illustrated Topo, and the BLMs Arizona Strip Maps are your best bet to find your way. Giving the National Forest or National Park Service a call to check on current conditions is also a must do. Read the guide below to learn more.
