11/23: Mother Nature brought us some snowfall just in time for our 2021 opening day. Set your alarms, opening day is TOMORROW! We are so excited to kick off another phenomenal winter season with you and the Arizona Gondola will begin turning at 9 AM tomorrow offering access to expert terrain only to Upper Ridge, Midway Catwalk, Logjam, and Wild Turkey. NO beginner terrain will be available on opening day.


11/20: Our snowmaking team has continued to work relentlessly to get you out on the mountain and shredding as soon as possible. Thankfully, the weekend has continued to bring colder temperatures allowing our team to make significant progress and begin to focus efforts further down the mountain. Stay tuned for more updates!

11/19: Due to the colder temperatures and our hardworking snowmaking team, it’s beginning to look a lot like winter at Snowbowl. We remain incredibly hopeful that the colder temperatures will remain consistent throughout the weekend and allow us to continue our efforts to get you out on the mountain sometime later next week. Get your gear ready, wax those skis, and do your snow dances because you just may be sending it down the mountain sooner than expected.

11/18: Temperatures have been colder than forecasted this week and our snowmaking team has made incredible progress. Snowmakers have continued to produce snow throughout the upper mountain and the colder temperatures have allowed the team to move operations all the way to the Agassiz Lodge. Check out our live webcams to see our progress!

11/17: Our snowmaking team is making significant progress down the mountain and plans to utilize cooler temperatures throughout the weekend to produce more snow coverage on the lower terrain.

11/16: Winter is getting closer every day! The forecast looks promising and temperatures are continuing to drop throughout the week, allowing our snowmaking team to continue to produce high-quality snow at every given opportunity. We truly cannot wait to welcome you back for another great season and will continue to provide updates as progress is made.
