Flagstaff Snowbowl


flagstaff snowbowl


Flagstaff Snowbowl, or more properly the Arizona Snowbowl is Arizona's favorite skiing facility. It's  located just north of town on the San Francisco Peaks.

Note: Because many people search the internet using the keyword phrase Flagstaff Snowbowl, I'll continue to use this less-than-proper name on this page.

The Flagstaff Snowbowl facility has been in continuous operation since 1938. Few other ski facilities can make this claim. Convenient, family friendly, variety of runs, and much more are offered by the Snowbowl,

This convenient facility offers lessons for all ability levels, plus... what is acknowledged to be the best learning terrain in the Southwestern US. It also features:

  • 2300 feet of vertical dropflagstaff snowbowl
  • 4 chair lifts
  • 32 scenic alpine trails
  • Terrain Park for skiers and snowboarders
  • 2 lodges with restaurants and bars
  • Cabins
  • 260 inches of snowfall average per year
  • 4 month ski season (average - mid December thru mid-April)

The record-breaking snowfall totals for the 2004-2005 ski season allowed the Snowbowl to operate all season, which is unusual. This year is a much different story so far... no snow, no skiing, no jobs, and no fun, until late in the season.

The facility operators have received permission to make snow, but that decision is being challenged. Use the link at the bottom of this page to get updates on the status of snowmaking.

The Flagstaff Snowbowl also offers a popular Summer Scenic Skyride. It's a great way to enjoy views of the surroundings, wild flowers, and a different view of the Grand Canyon's North Rim.

Flagstaff, with a variety of hotels and motels is minutes from the mountain. Here's a link to help find accommodations near the Flagstaff Snowbowl.
