Is it very crowded in Dec?

We are coming for 3 days in December in the 2nd week. Is it very crowded in the Grand Canyon, in December? And does it snow?

Thank you.

Don't think it will be very crowded but there always can be snow. No way to predict. I'd still make a reservation inside the National Park www.grandcanyonlodges.com

Does it snow? Yes. It's over 7,000' in the mountains. Will it snow? Who knows? Be prepared. Is it crowded? Well, all the rim hotels were filled when you made your reservation. We stayed at the Kaibab Lodge, at the rim, over New Years about 3 years ago (had to arrive one day late due to a snowstorm on I-40, but the hotel folks kindly waived the fee for night we missed). Bundle up and enjoy!

Depends. Sometimes they close the road. Best is to check at www.az511.com Best vehicle will be a 4wd with wintertires with snow but they don't usually rent cars with wintertires. Only all wheather tires M&S if you are lucky. But lets hope it will be sunny and dry
