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

Although there are a few good runs, the lifts look to be from the 1960s complete with no bars or safety features. The lifts were so slow it took 45 minutes to get the run. Even on a great snow conditions day, it left a lot to be desired. But hey it's Arizona, so if this is all you can... More

We have just had two days here, and loved it. We are inexperienced skiers and loved the large beginner area with plenty of room to learn the skills and gain confidence. Staff are friendly and helpful. If you're staying in Flagstaff then it's best to get a hire car to get you to and from the ski area. Check for... More

My family and I skied 3 days over the Christmas holidays. This was our first trip to Snowbowl and all in all we had a good experience. Being from the midwest we only ski once or twice a year so we aren't exactly connoisseurs. On Christmas Day the slopes were not crowded at all and they weren't too bad on... More

Arizona Snowbowl is a solid "okay". The actual mountain - the vertical, the terrain, even the snow cover most years - is pretty good. For sure, by Arizona standards, it is probably the best of the four lift-served hills in the state. And its in Arizona, so for a state known for searing summers and endless deserts, its pretty cool... More

When it comes winter time, this is a good place for AZ sun residents to get some skiing in and a great place to take a chair life ride when it is fall time to see all of the changing colors. Cost is pretty good and a great way to spend a day.
