ANGELS LANDING SNOWSTORM

1 2 3 4

I had the amazingly good fortune of hiking Zion National Park's famous Angels Landing on a day of dramatic storms that dumped over a foot of snow on the peak. While this was one of my most thrilling hiking experiences, I can't stress enough how this is not recommended for casual tourists with no winter snow/ice trekking experience. Aside from needing a permit to do this hike, good cold-weather gear including traction devices and gloves are invaluable. Stay safe and always give yourself the option to turn around. Your safety is your responsibility.
