Change of Seasons 

Snowbowl - Flagstaff Arizona

An Alpine Ski Resort

 

Arizona Snowbowl sits at 9,200 feet above sea level.  The average annual snowfall is over 21 feet. Snowbowl is an alpine ski resort and is located in the beautiful San Francisco Peaks. It is seven miles north of Flagstaff.  This area gets thousands of visitors during the change of seasons.  Many come from the Phoenix area.  It is a 2.5-hour drive from that area.  For those of us in Sedona, It is about an hour's drive through Oak Creek Canyon.  

 

Flagstaff - One of the Snowiest Incorporated Cities in the USA

The elevation of Flagstaff is around 7,000 feet, and the annual snowfall in Flagstaff is about 8 feet. This makes Flagstaff one of the snowiest incorporated cities in the USA. Sedona's elevation averages 4,500 feet. 

 

Find Snippets of Color Throughout the Flagstaff Vicinity

 

The city of Flagstaff and the surrounding area will provide snippets of color during the next 3 weeks. You will see red, deep orange, and yellow leaves on many of the trees. It is a beautiful contrast moving into winter. 

 

Snowbowl Peak Color Viewing

 

Right now until the first snow in November, this is considered Flagstaff's dry season and this week is the peak week for viewing the color change of the Aspens.  There are areas all the way up to the Snowbowl parking lot that offer groves of aspens to view.  Besides Lockett Meadow, Aspen Corner is the other main area to see different groves nearby.

Hi Kathy Streib - Locket Meadow is really something to see at peak color.  There is a trail from the parking area that takes you right into the grove.

Hi Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty - This drive to the top parking lot of the ski resort has pockets of groves that change at different times because of the attitude change. It is a wonderful short drive.

Hi Myrl Jeffcoat - Thank you for the feature.  It is always an honor.  You are right about the sky color.  This is somewhere around 8000 feet so the air is clearer and much bluer.

Hi Rocky Dickerson - It is a pretty amazing sight to see.  I like Flagstaff proper because they have a lot of red trees as well.

Hi Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can! -  I enjoy all the seasons but fall is something special.  I probably enjoy it more because we really didn't see this in California.
