The ride up the mountain is beautiful at any time of the year and provides an excellent escape from the heat of summer. The ski lift is worth riding in summer as it takes one to an area that offers spectacular views and some easy hiking. The flowers were very pretty in late July and there is a good chance... More

I lived in Tucson for 7 years during Undergad and Grad school. Mt. Lemon Ski Area made a for a great escape when I was short on time and cash (which was often since I always worked full time). It's inexpensive as far as ski areas in AZ are concerned and was a short 30-40 minute drive from my apartment... More

I have skied here for 4 decades. The lift is a slow double chair, bring a book. The other 2 don't go more than a very few vertical feet. Terrain is quite good, I think better than Sunrise. For all climate deniers Mt Lemmon didn't open for the winter of '13-14 (never happened before) and only did for a very... More

Took the chair lift to the top of the ski hill. Initially disappointed that it didn't start until 11:00 and that the car parking lot was locked at 4:00. When we got to the top, the view although good had been definitely impacted by the fire. We were surprised that most people rode the chair lift, got off, took a... More

One of the best kept secrets in Tucson is this ski lift atop of Mt. Lemon. During the winter it provides skiers with a way to enjoy some happy times. The only disappointment is that sometimes we do not get enough snow. At all other times, the ski provides a way for all of us to reach the top and... More

However, we chose to ride the ski lift on a round trip to the top and back. It is a little pricey ($10 per adult) but the views as you come back down the hill are spectacular. I don't know when they actually have enough snow to ski? We have visited in January twice and there wasn't much snow either... More

We drove up in late December just after it had snowed. We left Tucson and it was 70 degrees, by the time we arrived at the ski resort it was below freezing. The views were stunning and it's hard to believe the changes in the types of plants and animals. We watched pretty little birds with the most stunning irridecant... More

We love Mount Lemmon and took this trip on a miserable hot humid July day. It's 30 degrees cooler at the top so it felt heavenly. We tried to take the lift trip up the mountain, but it was closed for service the first attempt and lightning storms shut it down the second trip. The staff if great and they... More

It takes almost 2 hours to drive up to the top of Mt. Lemmon and come back... if you stop for pictures along the way. I kind of regret not being able to take more time to get out and explore some of the rest areas along the way... but was restricted by time. Couln't believe the change in climate... More
