I don't think the lift is still running scenic chair lift rides anymore, but you should call and check. The views were amazing with many of the trees near the base changing colors (some were yellow and orange, a very few were red, and then most were evergreens as the elevation got higher). I highly recommend heading out in the... More

This is the most personable place to learn and ski. The mountain is quaint enough to not get lost, yet challenging enough to make the hair on the back of your neck stick up. The lodge is adorable and the staff like family.

Took the family for a trip up north to see what fall looks like (not much of that in the desert), and enjoyed lots of amazing scenery; beautiful aspens and blue skies. The line was pretty long, about one hour to get on the lift, and then 30 minutes to the top. From the top, we saw the north rim... More

Took a ride on the ski lift and it was so peaceful. 30 minutes up and down. There was no snow, but I loved it anyway.

The Snowbowl is not only for skiing. During the summer, it's a beautiful place to hike. A half hour chair lift ride to the top is also fun. But if the trees have changed color in the fall - head up there. Spectacular foliage.

I am sure when ski season is here that there is plenty going on but today it was just a lot of tourists out to see the aspens in the fields. It was lovely and I know the ski lift ride is wonderful if you get a chance to go to the top and take in the views. Come bring... More

While not like snowboarding in Washington, who would have thought you could do this in the desert. It is quite crowded but then again, your in the desert just 2 hours from snow. Great for a day trip.

Loved the idea of a chair lift when we saw it in the magazine and it was well worth the trip op the mountain. Extremely well organized, before boarding you can buy great roll up blankets for $ 15 in the gift shop, in case it gets cold along the way. Defenitely cold once on top of the mountain, but... More

Great scenery! From the drive up to the Ski area to the top & back. 11,510 ft is amazing! Well worth the 1hr spent waiting in line. Met some fun folks while waiting in line & that made the time pass quickly. Volunteer Rangers at the top were friendly & full of information. Highly recommend!

Purchased the groupon for the chairlift and absolutely LOVED it! Definitely not for anyone with a fear of heights! The views not only on the chairlift itself but at the top and bottom of it were absolutely amazing! Definitely recommend trying this at least once!
