Arizona Snowbowl, Flagstaff

4.0
#1 of 7 in Winter Sports in Arizona
Glide down the slopes and take in the fantastic fews at one of the oldest continually run ski areas in the United States, Arizona Snowbowl, where a local feel still prevails. Just outside Flagstaff on the San Francisco Peaks, the ski area opened in 1938; today it boasts over 40 runs, six chairlifts, and a terrain park featuring rails, boxes, spines, and other obstacles. Check conditions before booking, as poor snowfall can cause late starts or early closures to the season. The Agassiz chairlift takes you to an elevation of 3,505 m (11,500 ft) to see views of the surrounding areas, including the Grand Canyon 112 km (70 mi) away.

  • Nice place with restaurant at the bottom of the slopes . Lots of parking space and several slopes. Very well designed  more »
  • Great weather, fresh snow this past weekend. Decently priced, for roughly $100 for an adult lift ticket plus rental board and boots. Came up for the day. 100% of the staff is run by the local college ...  more »
  • It was crazy busy and we had a great time. Second time asking here and it was a good experience. Had lunch at Prairie Hart Lodge. Staff was friendly and helpful. Can't wait to go again!  more »

  • This is a great option for southwest skiing. I’ve been all over Colorado, Utah and Wyoming. The people that are complaining about the price hike the last few years are the same ones that begged for a new chairlift to alleviate the lines at Agassiz lift. The Grand Canyon Express is a great lift to help with traffic flow. Probably the best place I’ve ever been for taking kids skiing (cost wise) all of March they have $29 tickets and $10 lessons and rentals. If you want to get your little ones into skiing or snowboarding it doesn’t get better than that for pricing. Besides kids don’t care about conditions in March they just want to learn. Recap- if they get a foot or so get up to the hill ASAP it melts quickly. And enjoy the new ownership as they will spend the money to make this place great
  • First time visited this place with my family last year during summer and it was an amazing experience. Loved the weather and the beautiful place. It was really fantastic. Definitely recommend this place for a weekend getaway. Family can have fun walking the trails. Good spot for photography.
  • Very disorganized. Teen staff can't answer any questions. We were a large family party, who have never skied before and were clueless. Nobody could offer any help to get us on the way with rental gear or lift/ lesson info and everything was confusing. The only reason I gave 2 stars was because the facility was decently clean and not too pricey. Probably a great place to go if you're local or a seasoned skier, but for a newbie family we were literally left out in the cold without a clue.
  • Here 20 Jan. Snowing now.. I like this place. Easy to get to and friendly staff. It’s not Utah or Colorado skiing but that’s an unfair comparison. Base is 9,300 ft so with a decent storm, you get pretty good powder over the man made stuff. Just keep an eye on the snow storm. No real discounts in early season but coming from 78 deg Tucson, I’m not complaining. Best deals are the $ 29.00 Spring Ticket or $39.00 with equipment. Brought my kids 4 times last season and had a fantastic time. Hoping to do the same this year.
  • Much better since they started making their own snow. Staff friendly. Meals expensive, but about average for a ski resort. Beer selection is usually really good, but sometimes the lines are long. New lifts are nice and wait time is not too bad. My only complaint is the bathrooms could be cleaner and much bigger for the crowd. I usually have a good time here, but a bad day skiing is better than a good day working...
