2 days is a good amount of time to visit Grand Canyon South Rim. You can spend one day driving around and visiting the viewpoints and the next day doing some walks and hikes.
The Grand Canyon in snow is beautiful but visibility does depend on the amount of mist and cloud cover that comes in and how low it is. If you happen to visit during a blizzard you won’t see much at all. I would refrain from visiting during an actual snowstorm as you won’t see anything and you risk getting stuck.
In general, Grand Canyon National Park Roads remain open during the winter months but are subjected to adverse weather conditions. Hermit Road is open for private vehicles
The weather at the Grand Canyon during winter can be unpredictable and changeable. This is just one of the risks you’ll need to factor in when visiting the Grand Canyon at this time of year. The average high is 45°F/7°C and the average low is 18°F/-8°C.
To make the most of the views, you can also opt for a Helicopter Ride over the Grand Canyon. It’s one of the best ways to take in the views and the sheer size of the canyon, not to mention it’s super fun too. Many tours depart from Tusayan which isn’t far to go to board your chopper.
Most of your time at the Grand Canyon will most probably be spent driving from one iconic viewpoint to another. You don’t need to drive far to find another excuse to park up and enjoy the scenery from another vantage point. Some viewpoints not to be missed are Desert Viewpoint, Mather Point and Hopi Point.
