  1. Default Denver to Los Angeles Easter 2010


    We're planning a 4 week family vacation next year, spending 4 nights in New York, a couple in Niagara Falls and a couple in Toronto before flying west for another 3 weeks. We had originally planned to fly to Denver then go up to Salt Lake City then back down to Bryce Canyon, Zion, Grand Canyon, Vegas and Los Angeles. We'd be arriving in Denver in around 4th April, but are now a bit concerned about the weather/travelling conditions around then. We'll be hiring a car and staying in motels rather then hiring an RV. Any info on whether the weather/travelling conditions are likely to be OK by early April - is Bryce canyon likely to be passable?

    Default Nice trip.

    Quite some adventure !

    Hello and welcome to the R.T.A. forums.

    As you know predicting the weather this far in advance is an impossible task but generally speaking you will be able to get around just fine.
    The Trial ridge road in Rocky NP for instance, is often closed into late April or May due to snow on the ground at high elevation but Bryce canyon should be fine, although there is a chance of snow and you can expect temps below freezing at night, again due to elevation. Some stats from the NPS website. You can find lots of info on the parks using their Interactive map.

    Thanks for the info - the nps link is very good. Think we might take Zion in as well, time permitting!

    You just don't know - I was in Zion and Bryce at the end of February this year and the snow was not an issue. The roads were open and clear except for a little ice in Zion around the tunnel. There was still plenty of snow on the ground, but no big deal.
