Arizona Snowbowl, Flagstaff

(550+ reviews on the web)
Ski Area Nature / Park
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. Using our world travel planner, Flagstaff attractions like Arizona Snowbowl can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Had a great time at the end of March hitting the slopes on a Saturday. Couple of us came up from Tucson since there was still an 80"+ base. $29 lift tickets? Incredible! They had a killer "spring break" deal. It was my first time heading here and looking forward to coming back another time during the winter. Good range of terrain with decent variety of greens that some of our group hit up, some fun blues with lots of expanse to ride around on, then some pretty dope black runs up top. Some of the black diamonds were a bit too rugged for me and if you want extra challenge you could hike that bowl and shred those. Good food and drink options were available and lots of seating too. Always rough when it's midday and you wanna rest for a bit and not a seat can be found. All in all was a fun time riding with friends.
  • I love Snowbowl! Fortunate to be there in late January and this week when winter storms brought abundant powder. The new Grand Canyon Express provides quick access to nice intermediate runs on both sides of the mountain. Plenty of terrain for all levels of ability. Excellent ski instructors. Lodges are laid back, nothing fancy but comfortable. Beautiful scenery when the sun shines.
  • Spring skiing ONLINE prices were great! Staff is always pleasant and HAPPY to help. Hope they get they get to ski for free. Bar attendants are fun. Beer was good, onion rings were good to.
  • Snowball can be a lot of fun for a day or two but avoid this place on holidays/ busy saturdays. We were told no driving up to the resort, we must take a shuttle up and down from a parking lot at the bottom of the mtn. The way down at 4pm was a 30 minute wait and then a 2 hour shuttle ride to our car to go 5 miles. The small road can't handle crowds.
  • The good: still has snow when other lower areas don't. Maintained well from what I saw. Lot's of parking The bad: if you aren't skiing or snowboarding there really isnt anything else to do there. No tubing or sledding areas that I saw.
