The winter season has begun at Cedar Breaks National Monument in Utah, the Deseret News reported. Park facilities, including the campground, restrooms and visitors center, are closed for the season.

State Route 148 will remain open until snow forces its closure. Until that time, regular traffic is permitted, but caution is advised in winter conditions.

Cedar Breaks also invites recreationers to visit the Winter Ranger Station. On winter weekends, the traditional snow shelter is staffed by volunteers and park rangers. Located 1 mile south of the junction of state Route 143 and state Route 148, the shelter provides a warm welcome to Cedar Breaks for snowmobilers, snowshoers, and cross-country skiers.
