Arizona Snowbowl announced yesterday that they are being forced to postpone this week’s opening day due to ‘unusually warm temperatures’ that have prevented them from snowmaking.

As winter draws near, we’ve been working around the clock with the commitment to put skiing first and provide another amazing opening day for the 21/22 winter season. As Mother Nature continues to bring us mild temperatures, our scheduled opening day of November 19th is delayed until further notice.

While temperatures continue to drop, our snowmaking team will continue to work tirelessly for you to produce the best snow with our state-of-the-art snowmaking system.

Customer service will be reaching out to you 72 hours in advance of your ticket date if the mountain remains closed to assist with any exchanges and credits.

Check back for daily updates on our website, Instagram, and Twitter.

– Resort statement

A new opening date has not yet been set.

Conditions couldn’t be any further from 2019 when they opened on November 22nd with two feet of fresh snow and went on to have the longest season in the resort’s history, closing on May 19th.

Arizona Snowbowl is one of the oldest continually operating ski areas in the country. Located 14 miles north of Flagstaff, AZ, on the San Francisco Peaks and the highest mountain in Arizona (Humphreys Peak at 12,367 feet), Arizona Snowbowl offers 52 trails, 2,300 lift-served vertical feet, and over 3,000 hike-to vertical feet on 777 acres with eight lifts, three terrain parks, and two mountain lodges. They average around 260″ snowfall a year.
