Arizona

Arizona may be home to the Grand Canyon, but her mountains make it an unexpected skiers delight as well. From Flagstaff to Tucson, and all the way east to Pinetop and Holbrook, you'll find plenty of snow for skiing and snowboarding.

What Makes Arizona Skiing Unique

The White Mountains are one of Arizona's well-kept secrets. Just a short drive northeast of Tucson, you will find yourself skiing the 9,150-foot peak of Mount Lemmon. Snowbowl, an Arizonian favorite, is near the university town of Flagstaff. There you can enjoy cross-country skijoring, or snowshoeing if you like, or swoop down the 2,300-foot drop from the 11,500 foot grand peak. With more than a section of skiing trails and runs of every level, the freshest novice and the seasoned expert will discover something new and exciting. Snowboarders will be thrilled at the Sunset Terrain Park, which includes obstacles, spines, and rails. Their fun boxes include a 24-foot flat box, a 24-foot flat down box, and a 24-foot house box, as well as a 20-foot C-box.

Major Ski Resorts

The lodges and villages boast a long list of amenities. Of course you'll find staple food and refreshing beverages, bars, and entertainment. The skiing and riding schools are exemplary. And the area provides equipment repair and adjustments, as well as rental gear.

Flagstaff and the Snowbowl area live for winter and all of the fantastic activities of the season, as well as the après ski scene that follows. You'll find every kind of restaurant imaginable, from barbecue to gourmet dining and everything from kiddy parks to concert pubs along the lines of the House of Blues. Plus, there's nothing quite like coming down off the slopes to some authentic southwest cooking.

Shop at some of the South-Western boutiques in the area. The Native American jewelry is impressive and there are some deals to be found on authentic turquoise. If you like the visual flavor of the pueblos, you're certain to be thrilled with the layout of the buildings and the atmosphere they bring.
