Accessing Cedar Breaks in the Winter

Experience the sparkling white beauty of winter at Cedar Breaks. There are many activities available in the Monument during the winter for those who are unafraid of a little cold weather! Once the first heavy snowfall closes Utah Highway 148 (roughly mid November to late May) this scenic road becomes a groomed trail through the monument for visitors to ski, snowshoe and snowmobile on.
