Spring wildflowers bloom from April through June, peaking in May. Summer days are hot (95-100 degrees F.), but overnight lows are usually comfortable (65-70 degrees F.)

Autumn color displays begin in September in the high country, and in Zion Canyon in early November. Winters in Zion National Park are fairly mild. Winter storms bring rain or light snow to Zion Canyon, but heavier snow to the higher elevations. Clear days may become quite warm, reaching 60 degrees F.; nights are often in the 20s and 30s.

Under the ADA, service animals must be harnessed, leashed, or tethered, unless these devices interfere with the service animal’s work or the individual’s disability prevents using these devices. While there is no pet deposit taken, a customer with a disability may be charged for damage caused by himself or his service animal. Emotional support pets are not covered under this policy per Utah law and are considered “pets” and are not covered under this pet policy. Other pets will be considered in other areas and accommodations of the resort. A $250 to $1,000 pet fine will be charged if a pet is not authorized to be inside a lodging unit (level of fine commensurate with damages).
