Arizona Snow Bowl
Flagstaff is much different from the Arizona you’re picturing. Here in northern Arizona, cacti and desert heat give way to cool pines and scenic, snowy peaks. Located on the majestic San Francisco Peaks at 9,500 feet above sea level, Arizona Snowbowl is your year-round high elevation destination, whether you’re skiing in the sun in the winter or escaping the desert heat in the summer.
Arizona Snowbowl is located on the western slope of Mount Humphreys, the tallest point in the state. Humphreys is the most recognizable point on the San Francisco Peaks, which are north of Flagstaff. “The Peaks,” as they are often known, are what remains of an eroded, dormant stratovolcano that was formed between 500,000 and 1,000,000 years ago.
Here are some statistics about Snowbowl:
- Base elevation: 9,200 feet
