Ruby’s Inn Rolls out New Bryce Canyon Ice Ribbon for Festival
Bryce Canyon resort adds new ice skating option ahead of annual Winter Festival
(BRYCE CANYON CITY, Utah) The sound of skates gliding across smooth ice rejoins the soundtrack of winter at Ruby’s Inn with the unveiling of their brand new BCRA Bryce Canyon Ice Ribbon this month. Open for the entire season, the ribbon offers a meandering path to skate for every member of the family. Ruby’s Inn provides Ice skating, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing as crowd-favorite winter activities, with equipment rentals available onsite.
Bryce Canyon Winter Festival
The opening of the ribbon precedes the 38th Annual Bryce Canyon Winter Festival on February 18-20, 2023. Regardless of snow levels, the festival brings visitors for a weekend of family-friendly activities and educational opportunities. Registered attendees can attend archery classes and competitions, guided hikes/snowshoe treks and clinics on outdoor training and fitness options. For those who prefer to enjoy the snow from the warmth of the inside, educational classes about the geology and wildlife of the region along with various arts and crafts opportunities are available. The festival also features a family movie night and a dance for all ages, and if you want to venture out, Bryce Canyon National Park features extra programming over the weekend, included with the entrance fee to the park.
“Our family has enjoyed the beauty and fun of winter here for generations. The Winter Festival allows Ruby’s to introduce families from all over Utah to the adventures we have in the colder months – perhaps beginning new traditions for visitors,” explained Lance Syrett, hotel general manager at the resort. “We want to remind people that Ruby’s Inn and Bryce Canyon are more than just summertime destinations. Families need vacations in winter too – and we are much more affordable than an expensive downhill ski trip!”
Access passes to the Ice Ribbon with skate rentals included are only $7 and free for ages 3 and under, available at the Winter Activity Center. Links to registration and more information about the Bryce Canyon Winter Festival are available on Ruby’s Inn’s website: www.rubysinn.com
