Snowbowl Scenic Gondola
Experience a different side of Arizona.
There’s more to Arizona than desert. On the Arizona Gondola at Snowbowl, experience the full range of what the Grand Canyon State has to offer from the top of the San Francisco Peaks, with stunning views of six major biomes spanning from desert to alpine tundra. From north to south, see some the most iconic locations in the Southwest – the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and the red rock formations of Sedona – from a brand new perspective. As you travel from 9,500 feet (2896 meters) all the way up to the summit elevation at 11,500 feet (3505 meters), you’ll find yourself immersed in a place worlds apart from where you started. Experience a different side of Arizona – this is Arizona, elevated.
Now open daily from 10am to 4pm. Learn more about summer at Snowbowl here.
