Snowbowl Scenic Chairlift
About the Scenic Chairlift
Take in the dramatic scenery of northern Arizona from a bird’s eye view on the Grand Canyon Express lift. As the lift travels up to 10,800 feet, you can see the cinder cone volcanic field, the red rocks in Sedona, and as far as the Grand Canyon on a clear day. The chairlift ride offers great opportunities for photography, observing wildlife, or just enjoying the fresh air and expansive views from the San Francisco Peaks. Open Fridays through Sundays in September, and daily starting October 2nd.
All tickets must be purchased online and quantities are limited per day. To help manage capacity and encourage social distancing, AM and PM sessions are offered. Get a discount and beat the traffic by purchasing an early ticket!
Please note: as of 6/19, masks are required at Snowbowl in accordance with the Coconino County proclamation. The number of vehicles within the resort boundaries will be managed at the entrance gate to ensure adequate space for social distancing. When capacity is reached, vehicles will be allowed in on a one-out, one-in basis.
