Driving to Bryce in February advice please!

We are skiing in Park City and planning to drive to Bryce Canyon on 15th Feb, stay over for one night and drive to Zion for one night then on to Vegas to fly back to the UK.

We have a SUV car and three drivers, could anyone advise us of the most scenic (but safest) route to take from Park City to Bryce Canyon and the best short hikes and drives to do when we get there. Advice on the rest of the route would be also very welcome. We like to walk but a scenic drive might be the best use of our limited time.

We really love Utah and are planning a return trip next year we may have to sell a couple of kidneys !!!! Thank you.

Well, the long range forecast shows 40% chance of snow for next week. I would normally suggest taking 6/10/72/24/12 to Bryce from the SLC area but if it is storming you would be better going 15/20/89/12. You don't have to decide until the day of course, the first route will take considerably longer but is very scenic. (354 miles vs 272 and on slower roads)

note also that 'most scenic' and 'safest' are usually exclusive terms.

Scenic could also be taking Hwy 6 to hwy 89 and following 89 all the way south: http://www.utahheritage.com/
