Arizona Snowbowl has had to halt summer operations indefinitely due to nearby wildfires threatening the resort.

The US Forest Service closed Coconino National Forest, where Snowbowl is located, meaning the resort had to close down.

This afternoon, the U.S. Forest Service announced the full closure of Coconino National Forest beginning on Wednesday, June 23 due to fire danger. Because Snowbowl is located entirely within the forest boundaries, we will temporarily close for summer operations at the end of Tuesday, June 22 until further notice.

We understand this closure will affect guests who have purchased tickets in advance, and our Guest Services team will contact all guests directly regarding any pre-purchased tickets. For any other questions, please send us an email at and we will get back to you as quickly as possible – please note that response times may be delayed due to a high volume of inquiries.

We’re committed to keeping all of our guests informed, and we’ll continue to provide updates on our website as well as our social media channels as we learn more. We’re thankful to all the firefighters and first responders who are currently working tirelessly to mitigate fires around the state and keep us safe, and we look forward to welcoming everyone back this summer only when conditions are safe to do so.
