Just a couple of miles outside Flagstaff. Beautiful scenery....amazing views. It's a great way to spend an afternoon. Excellent family adventure. Take a sweater as it is very cool at the top. It was so peaceful, the wind in the aspens and the smell of the pines, mmmm great! I would highly recommend it. The only drawback were the filthy... More

The view is fantastic, but the wait time to get on the lift was extremely long. Waited way over an hour to get on the chairlift at the bottom of the mountain, and then waited another 40 minutes at top to get on the lift to come back down. What we thought was going to be a fun morning outing... More

I was so scared at first, but them I relaxed and I was overcome by the view. The ride back let us all in awe. It's like skydiving without a plane. Plus the guys in the office are so great. Thanks snowbowl it was the best memory of our 2 week trip.

Did the skylift to the top which with Groupon was more than worth it. Family saw deer which made it worth while. The View was amazing, however, watch the weather as rain came in suddenly and unexpectedly so the time at the top was limited. Very friendly staff. Cleanliness at the restaurant, especially the bar area left much to be... More

Got a great deal on Groupon and gave the summer chairlift ride a try. Amazing views. Could see for hundreds of miles. Weather was beautiful and it was nice and quite. You could hear the breeze in trees and birds singing. Ride lasted about 30 min each way. Park rangers at the top to answer questions. Tip: Its a little... More

Arizona Snowbowl is the coolest place in Arizona, literally. The temperatures at the top (at 11,500 ft) are usually 10-20 degrees cooler than in Flagstaff, making it sometimes 40-50 degrees cooler than in the valley. We always recommend dressing in layers (just in case). Having sunglasses and sunscreen is also always a good idea. Thank you for making us a... More

Our first time skiing and we had a blast. My 6 year old took ski lessons and he loved it. His instructor was great, although I did notice one or two that weren't too good. Beautiful views. It wasn't as cold as I thought it would be and for that reason the snow is artificially made. Great first time experience.

Hooray to the first timers! We are so glad to hear that your son loved his first days on the snow. Snowbowl is proud to offer one of the best and largest beginner terrains in the Southwest. Many think that it should be cold on the snow, but our skiers and riders enjoy mild temperatures, over 260 inches of snow... More

Great service, easy parking and an all around wonderful time. Purchased through a groupon, so I'm not sure how much it normally costs. But I will definitely repeat!

Thank you for taking time to leave this comment on the Scenic Chairlift. For your repeat trip to Snowbowl, please consider fall colors in September and October, when the temperatures are a bit cooler and aspen turns bright yellow - it is truly a magical time to be here. Winter at Snowbowl are fun too - come and enjoy skiing... More

This was a destination stop for our group of motorcycle riders. We called ahead and got discount tickets to ride the lift. Beautiful scenery! What a way to beat the Phoenix heat in the summer.

Christine, thank you very much for your positive review. The Scenic Chairlift is truly a great option to escape the heat as the temperatures at the top (11,500 ft) can be 30-40 degrees cooler than in the valley. Check the weather for a chance of monsoon showers and don't forget to dress in layers! More

Attended a wedding reception held at the Hart Prairie Lodge at the lower portion of the snowbowl. Enjoyed the facilities and the parking was ample. The ski resort is about 7 miles outside Flagstaff along the route north towards the Grand Canyon and sits at approximately 9500 feet above sea level. They usually get excellent snowfall levels during ski season... More
