Sedona in December?

Hi everyone, we (me, husband & 11 yr daughter) just visited Sedona for the first time last May. Yes, very beautiful! something so surreal about the place!. Anyways, we left our sons at home cause college & high schooler (cant miss school) but they wanted to go and we Missed Them on the trip with us. With that in mind, the only time we can go back with them is in December right after Christmas. Are the Pink Jeeps still doing there tours? Can you hike or is it too cold? Any activities ? Is it still pretty?

Any info greatly appreciated

Thanks ! Cindy

Sedona is open and beautiful all year round. Pink Jeep tours are a 365 day business. To give you an idea of weather, we play golf in Sedona all year long. In December and a few other winter months, it gets cold at night. Snow happens about 4-5 times each winter and it happens at night. In 90% of the cases it all melts by noon of the next morning, overnight frost is more common. So our golf courses often experience frost delays. You can wake up in the morning to freezing temperatures, but by noon it will be in the 50s and highs might even reach 70.

It's great weather for hiking. And if you're lucky enough to see snow on Sedona's red rocks, you'll never forget it. In short, you can do just about everything in December that you did in May except swim in Oak Creek. Bring clothes that you can layer because nights will be cold.
