When does it snow in Show Low?

What time of the winter would be the best to take the kids up to play in the snow?

I'm pretty sure they got snow last week. But just watch the local news and weather in PHX. They'll tell you when Sunrise ski area opens and what the conditions are like. That's the best gauge.

Hi katiew and welcome to the TA forums!

Usually January and February have heavier snowfall than sometime before Christmas (although we got 18" one Thanksgiving!). RedRox advice to check the evening weather is a good one. It'll give forecasts for snowfall and usually report the actual measurements for various areas after the storm rolls through. I use the webcam at Pinetop Country Club to know how much I will find in my cabin's driveway when I get there. It's under repair right now so check back in a few weeks to see if it's working. http://www.wmccpinetop.com/index.html

The only problem with checking conditions at Sunrise is they make snow and distribute it around the slopes so it is not a good indicator of how much is in Show Low or Pinetop. Plus it often gets snow when other areas do not.

This is the site I use to check the forecast before I go up to our home in Lakeside.


They did get snow last week although it is very unusual for that to happen so early in the year. It kind of freaked out my landscaping company who had not winterized the watering system yet. We're praying it does not snow for Thanksgiving because we're all going up there to celebrate this year.
