Elevations in our region range from 4,000 to over 9,000 feet. However, most communities in the Kane County, Utah / Grand Canyons Region range in elevation between 5,000 and 6,000 feet and this makes summers fairly temperate and winters that are not to cool.
Snow lovers will enjoy Duck Creek Village (8,400 feet) and the Grand Canyon north rim (9,000 feet) for winter-time cross-country skiing, snowmobiling and snow-shoeing. These locations also offer cooler summer temperatures.
At the valley floor of Zion National Park (4,000 feet) you'll find very mild winter-weather. During summers the east rim of Zion (6,000 to 6,500 feet) offers mild summer temperatures and frequently clear night skies. Some of the clearest skies in America are found over this entire region and star-gazing is excellent.
While this will range depending on elevation, places like Kanab (4,900 feet) sit at a perfect mid-point in the temperature changes between seasons.
