What to Expect

Experiencing Moab is unique and magical. Here are a few reasons why you should consider visiting Moab during the wonderful winter season:

1. Mild Winter Climate: Moab enjoys a relatively mild winter climate compared to other parts of the country. While it can get chilly, the temperatures are generally more comfortable for outdoor activities like hiking and biking. When it comes to packing, bring lots of layers.

2. Less Populated: Moab is renowned for its breathtaking natural scenery, including the well-known Arches National Park. Visiting in winter means fewer people, so you can enjoy the beauty of the area without lots of tourists. For your hike to the Delicate Arch, make sure to bring snow grips.
