Arizona Snowbowl/Flagstaff Chamber COVID-19 Relief Fund
Giving Back to Local Small Businesses
As a part of our commitment to the community, Snowbowl pledged to donated 1% of season pass sales through May 29 to local small businesses affected by COVID-19. With funds raised from pass sales and a matching contribution from the Coleman Charitable Foundation, we’re partnering with the Greater Flagstaff Chamber of Commerce to create the Arizona Snowbowl/Flagstaff Chamber COVID-19 Relief Fund for small businesses.
