Arizona Snowbowl


The Snowbowl's 2300 feet of vertical and location just 14 miles from Flagstaff are yet another reason why the town is Arizona's outdoor recreation hotspot. Nestled in the beautiful San Francisco Mountains, the Snowbowl has been around since 1938.

It may best be known for the Hart's Prairie beginner area, a 50-acre rectangle served by two double chairs and a short surface lift, where thousands of Arizonans learned to ski. The 650 feet of vertical here is more than ample to develop the rhythm necessary for first-timers to feel confident on the snow.
