Current Status of Park Roads:
Highway 62 and the road to Rim Village are open year-round, although the last 3 miles (between Park Headquarters and Rim Village) are sometimes closed temporarily during periods of heavy snow.
These facilities are CLOSED for the winter:
Rim Drive is open to cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. The park's other ski trails are also open.
Backcountry camping requires a permit. Permits are free, but must be obtained in person from Park Headquarters between 10am and 4pm. Campers must ski or snowshoe at least 1 mile into the backcountry in order to camp.
