The adventure is Utah this winter! (Southern Utah)

In winter, Utah is best known for its 15 ski resorts including Park City Mountain, Deer Valley Resort, Alta, Sundance, Snowbird and new Woodward Park City, that proudly showcase the Greatest Snow on Earth®, however it’s the opportunity to explore a series of less-trodden alternative experiences that makes Utah such an extraordinary winter destination. 
Delta has confirmed it will extend direct flying in to Salt Lake City over the winter months, starting December 19th 2019 and continuing into the spring.  This new winter route will increase access to the Rocky Mountains and world class ski resorts of the north and the remarkable Mighty 5® National Parks: Arches, Bryce Canyon, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef and Zion and 44 State Parks across the state.

Experience Utah’s Mighty 5® National Parks in winter
Utah’s iconic red rock wonderland welcomes the majority of guests in the summer months when travellers from around the world flock to see the jaw-dropping landscapes and extraordinary rock formations lit by blazing sunshine. Conversely, Southern Utah is full of quiet splendour and solitude from December through to March. The parks are practically empty and the same veritable set of scenic landmarks can be viewed in complete tranquillity and often cloaked in snow.  
Alternative ways to explore...
Snow-shoeing in Bryce Canyon
The best way to experience the spectacular beauty of Utah’s Bryce Canyon is to hike or snow shoe down into the canyon’s amphitheatre amid the towering hoodoos and layers of snow. The rock structures are sensational up close! Ruby’s Inn accesses 19 miles of groomed trails and stunning views with snowshoes available to hire from $10 per person. 
Hike the narrows in Zion National Park
One of the most amazing things to do in Zion National Park is to hike The Narrows and exploring them in winter is no exception. It may require a little more equipment but the experience of hiking one of the world’s best slot canyon routes in one of the USA’s most popular National Parks in complete solitude makes it even more spectacular. Zion’s location at a lower elevation means temperatures remain relatively mild and snow seldom reaches the canyon floor. Despite this, adventurers can expect to see frozen stalactites dangling from overhangs and clinging to cliff walls adding to the dramatic landscape.
