What Time of Year is Best to Visit Skywalk at Grand Canyon West? What is the weather like and what should I wear?

There is no best time of year to visit Grand Canyon West. The Skywalk is open year-round. Elevation is almost 5,000 feet (1,600 meters); snow is unusual, but overnight temperatures below freezing, and occasionally during the day are common during the winter months. High temperatures during July and August can approach 110 degrees Fahrenheit (43 Celsius).

A Skywalk day-trip during Spring and Autumn is wonderful; cool mornings, comfortable temperatures of 60′s to 80′s Fahrenheit during the day.

Summer storms with pockets of heavy rain can occur, sometimes during April, more commonly during July and August.
