“Very slow chairlift”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

Views are great but the chairlift takes forever to get to the top of the peak. We got the first snowfall of the season so be warned that it's a very cold ride up.

“TAKE THE SKI LIFT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

The Snobowl ski lift operates Friday thru Sunday. It costs $15 for adults and takes 30 minutes each way, up and down the mountain. At the top, you can hike around, have lunch, whatever, and then come back down when you like. It is a great ride and fantastic views!

“Take the chair lift to the top”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

We had a great view of the Flagstaff area from the top. It was a bit hazy and much warmer than I expected at 11,500. It is a nice ride up with good views. When we visited hiking was limited to a small area.

“Kachina Trail”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

This trail is in the Snowbowl area. A beautiful but relatively easy trail that is mostly used by locals. We had a great hike despite record setting temps. We were able to look out over rain and hail in Flagstaff but experienced none of the bad weather. Perfect day!
