Does it snow at Grand Canyon?

Heck Yes!! This storm dropped up to 18 inches of snow overnight. I have seen it snow on the Rims as early as September and as late as May. Folks will work hard postholing up the trails for a few days following a storm. Icy conditions will prevail in shaded areas.

Some wonderful photos by Mike Quinn!
