Arizona’s Premier Winter Destination
During the winter, a snowy wonderland emerges from the desert. Just north of Flagstaff, the San Francisco Peaks and extensive pine trees seemingly appear from nowhere against the miles of rugged desert that surround them. In the midst of the mountains rests Arizona Snowbowl, Arizona’s premier winter destination. With over 260 inches of snowfall each year, Snowbowl is the ultimate place to kindle your love of skiing and snowboarding.
The journey begins as you cruise the 7-mile road that leads up to Snowbowl’s entrance. The dense ponderosa pines, part of the largest grove in the world, give way to aspen, blue spruce, and Douglas fir trees as the elevation rises, giving a distinct alpine feel not common in Arizona. Visit the mountain after a snowfall to discover a glistening forest painted white with snow.
The Mountainous Terrain At Snowbowl
The mountainous terrain at Snowbowl is diverse–perfect for beginner, intermediate, and expert skiers. Those new to skiing will enjoy the largest beginner terrain in the southwest, the Hart Prairie area, where a brand new lift and on-mountain instructors make the beginner experience unforgettably fun. You’ll find intermediate skiers and riders taking laps off of the Grand Canyon Express, cruising the groomers with endless enthusiasm. Expert skiers can’t get enough of the tree and hike-to runs within the bowl.
While everyone has their own experience on the slopes, it’s essential to come together for après ski festivities on the Agassiz Lodge deck or brand new Freemont Restaurant patio. Sip libations, warm up with hot chocolate and marshmallows, and recount your awesome runs with friends.
Snowbowl is open daily, including holidays, through April (weather permitting). For more information and to find lift ticket, lesson, rental and lodging discounts, visit www.Snowbowl.ski.
