It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Utah

Peak Season: November to April; July and August

Salt Lake City is the jumping-off point for skiing, so hotels and flights fill early. The Sundance Film Festival in January makes accommodations particularly expensive – though most events are in Park City, Salt Lake has its share of happenings. The parks woo summer travelers and crowd the highways.

Off Season: Mid-October to mid-November

Snow starts early and ends late in Utah, though the more experienced may still be able to hike parks like Zion wearing crampons. In particularly bad weather, national park roads may close and there may be fewer visitor services.

Sweet Spot: May to June; September to mid-October

In spring and fall the weather is perfect – especially in eastern Utah – and students are in school, which makes these months a great time to visit the national parks and hike, mountain bike, or horseback ride. Spring brings wildflowers and rushing mountain streams; in fall, fiery colors paint the mountains.
