The South Rim Road is open to the Visitor Center, but the remainder of the road is closed to allow for grooming the ski trail. Grooming is expected to start soon but the snowpack is thin. The North Rim and East Portal Roads are closed for the season.

Prepare yourself for 2,000 foot tall, narrow canyon walls dropping almost vertically to the Gunnison River.
The Black Canyon is known for crumbling rock, dizzying heights, and a lack of places to place protective equipment. Rock climbing is a challenge limited to highly experienced, expert climbers only.
Did You Know?
The narrowest part of Black Canyon at the river is only 40 feet across.
