It’s here! Arizona Snowbowl has officially opened for the 2011-2012 snow season. All resort amenities will be open. Agassiz, Sunset and Hart Prairie chairs and the Little Spruce Conveyor will be operating daily from 9 am to 4 pm. Over 80% of the resort is now open with terrain available for all ability levels. Flagstaff has been getting some unusually cold weather and the town is excited to have a great skiing and snowboarding season at Snowbowl!
Is this your first time to Arizona Snowbowl?
Arizona Snowbowl is located just 14 miles outside of Flagstaff. It takes about 2 1/2 – 3 hours to the top of the mountain if you’re coming from Phoenix. There are plenty of places to rent ski and snowboarding gear around town averaging about $30/day for a complete equipment set up not including clothing. There are several slopes perfect for beginners. In fact, this is one of the more beginner friendly places to learn. This resort has a great team of instructors to learn from if you feel like taking ski or snowboarding lessons at Snowbowl. So just come out, give it a try and have fun!

Bio: Bio: It’s not like the film “Heathers,” but the authors of ArizTravel do have the same first name, Christina Hecht and Christina Zubieta (Chrissy). They maintain six Arizona travel websites, and one day, Christina H realized that many of the questions people were asking through the sites had answers that anyone visiting Arizona could benefit from. Thus, the birth of the blog. The Christinas earn a living from selling advertising on their sites, but they accept no compensation or freebies for blog postings. Christina H enjoys being a tour guide. She’s really proud of her ability to find the back roads to almost anywhere she goes. And Chrissy Z’s spirit of adventure is borderline crazy. So you have one Christina to get you going in a great direction and the other to help you explore.
