Arizona Snowbowl has started its summer operations, The scenic chairlift is open 10:00 am – 4:00 pm every Friday, Saturday, Sunday plus two holiday Mondays (May 26 and September 1) during the summer season (Memorial Day Weekend through mid-October).
Take in the dramatic scenery of northern Arizona from a bird’s eye view atop an extinct volcano at 11,500 ft (3,500 m). Enjoy hiking, interpretive talks, play a round of disc golf or treat yourself to lunch on the patio with a mountain view. The Agassiz Lodge comes alive in the summer offering music on the weekends and a family friendly menu with indoor and outdoor table service.
Snow Remains on the Mountain
Even in a year with record drought conditions, Arizona Snowbowl still has snow in many areas on the mountain. In fact, when unloading the scenic chairlift ride at 11,500 ft, guests will be able to walk up to an area that still has several feet of snow. So bring the family and experience snow in May.
Private Events at Agassiz Lodge
Due to higher demand for events at Arizona Snowbowl, guests can now rent Agassiz Lodge for private functions. From birthday parties to corporate meetings, Agassiz Lodge offers indoor and outdoor seating up to 100 guests. Combine your next event with a private sunset chairlift ride or take advantage of the mountain environment to wow your guests.
The success of the 2013-14 winter season is attributed to the new snowmaking system. Arizona Snowbowl averages 260 inches of natural snow annually, but received barely over 100 inches this past winter. Without snowmaking, Arizona Snowbowl would not have been able to offer such quality skiing and riding and could have faced the possibility of not opening. The 2013-14 winter season realized 122 consecutive days of being open and over 140,000 visitors to the mountain.
