Late December at the Grand Canyon?

Jump to last reply

Am I crazy? I need to plan a real vacation, and I have zoned in on the idea of going to the Grand Canyon (South Rim) in December. My thinking is that yes, it will be chilly (but still probably not as cold as home) but would be less crowded and views might be even more spectacular with clear winter air, losing some of the haziness of summer. Am I nuts?

I know they can get snow sometimes, but how bad is it really? Will the road up through Flagstaff get icy/snowy sometimes? I'm kind of thinking of also driving east, maybe as far as Canyon de Chelly, so the same questions apply. How are the roads out in that direction, and how often might they get snow? It's not like we aren't used to icy, snowy roads, but it can make a difference if the local road maintenance people don't keep up with it.

Is this a crazy idea? Have others visited at that time of year and what do they think?
