I think with great snow this place would be awesome but as i haven't had a great time skiing there i can't rate it higer. However, both years we have been there has been very little snow and it was very hard to ski there (ice in the morning and slush by noon) The main lodge is pretty good to... More

A group of 4 of us went up to Snowbowl for the first time not knowing what to expect. We did the ski lift tour in the summer months and it was awesome! The view was fantastic at the top, above the cloud line at times as a weather front was moving in... Had an amazing time! Will do this... More

Was able to catch the slopes on a half day. Only downside was there weren't enough snowboarding gear (boots and board) for people, like us, who only went for half a day... we had to wait a bit, but was finally able to enjoy after a little wait!

First time visit but very impressed with grooming the night before and snow making for a weekend mid Feb. Upper Lodge nicer than lower for lunch and a break. Be back next year.

We made a quick getaway trip to Arizona from Minnesota, as the children had a Monday off of school. This was not our first choice for ski resorts, but we had family and friends in the area that we wanted to also visit. The locals say that this is a great resort when there is a lot of fresh snow....

I would highly recommend snowbowl for skiing if you are from this area and have a weekend. If you are taking a ski week vacation, go somewhere else like big bear, mammoth, etc that actually has a ski village. That being said, for a weekend this is great and I have been coming here many years and this weekend was... More

Went on Saturday of MLK weekend 2015. 4 lifts total. 2 in the beginner area are PAINFULLY slow doubles. The two that access the rest of the mountain are PAINFULLY slow triples. The main lift Agissiz takes 20 minutes and kept breaking down. I rode with people who were experiencing 30 - 60 minute waits routinely. The terrain is nothing... More

We spend few days in Flagstaff for Grand Canyon and Meteor Crater visit when suddenly understand that there is a ski resort not far away. We did a drive here but were really supprised that we can not rent a ski clothes. It was a big disappointing factor for us... Usually in Europe and Asia in each ski resort you... More
