WATCH: Hiking Zion's Angel's Landing Covered In Snow

By

Utah’s Zion National Park is one of the most popular warm-weather tourist attractions in the country.

Millions of people from across the globe flock to this corner of southern Utah to hike and soak in the majesty that is Zion’s towering towering red rock cliffs.

Unbeknownst to most, it snows quite regularly in Zion during the winter, and it can make for a completely different experience.

Zion’s most famous feature is arguably Angel’s Landing. Hikers can shimmy their way out to the point (you need a permit nowadays) and take in one of the best natural views in the world.

The video below shows NotLostNomad hiking to Angel’s Landing during a recent snowstorm.

He says that the route was dangerous, but that the snow made for stunning views. Check it out:

NotLostNomad: @JerryArizona and I climbed up the famous Angel’s Landing in Zion National Park in and epic snowstorm. This was my last day of my trip and we were lucky enough to win permits in the Angels Landing lottery. The timing of the weather was amazing but it made for a pretty dangerous hike. We utilized Khatoola Microspikes to ensure that we had traction on the trail. I hiked in my Altra Lone Peaks that are not waterproof so I used my Randy Sun Neoprene socks to keep my feet warm. This was definitely a day that I will never regret!”
