Arizona Snowbowl in Flagstaff opens today, and skiers and riders will be treated to 2-feet of fresh snow that the resort has just received.
The Grand Canyon Express chairlift, Arizona’s only high-speed six-person lift, is scheduled to open at 9 am, providing access to four intermediate trails including Midway Catwalk, Logjam, Wild Turkey, and Round Up. The Little Spruce conveyor lift will service limited beginner terrain and a selection of terrain park features will also be available.
“Last winter was the longest season ever in the 82-year history of Snowbowl and we are eager to carry that momentum into the start of the 2019-2020 season,” stated Rob Linde, general manager. “Carrying on our tradition of first to open in Arizona would not be possible without the hard work and dedication of our entire team.”
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 on 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.
Lift tickets are $59 for all ages and discounted tickets can be purchased online. For more ticket information, visit www.snowbowl.ski.
