Utah packing checklists

Utah is one of the most beautiful states in the United States. It is known for its stunning natural beauty, diverse landscapes, and a wide range of outdoor activities. From the warm days of summer to the snow-covered slopes of winter, Utah has something for everyone.

The best month to visit Utah depends on what you’re looking for in your trip – whether you want to experience its amazing snow sports or enjoy its stunning desert landscapes.

We have lived in Utah for over 20 years and travel around the state often. The number one tip we have is to pack the right clothing and gear for the temperatures and weather for the location and time you’ll be visiting.

Packing For a Trip to Utah

Time of year, weather, region and elevation of the Utah vacation spots you’ll visit are important to consider when packing for your trip. Weather can be unpredictable any time of year, so be sure to check the forecast and pack accordingly!

Utah is a dry, semi-arid and desert climate. It is one of the driest states in the country with one of the lowest relative humidity percentages. Your skin will feel it so be sure to pack hand lotion and lip protection with sunscreen!

Utah spring weather: March is still cold and rainy, with snow showers possible any time. In April temperatures begin to warm and measurable snowfall end. Most ski resorts end operations mid-April. May is a very pleasant month across the state. Temperatures are moderate, the length of the days and sunshine are longer and there are enough rainstorms to keep it cool.

Utah summer weather: Summer kicks off in June with enjoyable temperatures and occasional rainfall. July and August are the warmest months of the year with the same range of average high temperatures. These are the driest (least humid) months with the least amount of rainfall.

Utah fall weather: The beginning of September the days can still be hot. In October temperatures really start to cool and snow begins to fall in the higher elevations. By November temperatures are cold and snow begins to accumulate in the mountains.

Utah winter weather: Winter lasts from December through February with long periods of snowfall and freezing temperatures. December and January are the coldest months of the year. February brings a mix of winter and occasional spring weather, but it doesn’t last.

We highly recommend you get the US National Park Pass if you’ll be visiting any Utah National Parks. It’s valid for one year from the date of purchase. Check the National Park Service website for the most current pricing information.

We like to buy our pass through REI – they donate 10% of sale proceeds to the National Park Foundation which is cool! Plus that purchase goes toward our REI annual member dividend. You can also get them at any of these Federal Recreation Areas.

Clothing for Spring, Summer and Fall in Utah

You’ll want to wear wicking clothing so it pulls moisture (sweat) away from you and moves it to the fabric’s outer surface, where it can dry quickly. Wicking clothing allows you to sweat without feeling clammy or chilled.
