Opening Day is Friday–Here’s What to Expect

The 2018/2019 winter season kicks off this Friday at Snowbowl!

The Grand Canyon Express chairlift, Arizona’s only high-speed six-person lift, will be open from 9am to 4pm, providing access to four intermediate trails including Midway Catwalk, Logjam, Wild Turkey, and Round Up, plus three terrain park features. Little Spruce, the conveyor lift, will offer access to beginner terrain on Hart Prairie, the largest beginner area in the southwest.
