Arizona Snowbowl has been Arizona’s best ski and snowboarding destination since the 1900’s. At 9,500 feet they offer many style’s of runs from kids to experts. They offer classes for beginners and ski and snowboard rentals for those who need to try before they buy. Be sure to plan your day accordingly. Weather conditions, lesson times and capacity can alter your arrival times.
For an easier way to get to the top of the San Francisco Peaks than the big hike up the Humphreys Trail, visit the Arizona Snowbowl ski area during the summer. They open the ski lift for sky rides to the top of the mountain. The 15 - 20 min ride to the top is followed by breath taking views that extend to the north and the edges of the Grand Canyon on a clear day.
