Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona

Arizona's Northern Region

Grand, Green & Great for Skiing

When most people think about Arizona, they think about the desert first. Next up? Probably the Grand Canyon. But what about all that green stuff surrounding the Grand Canyon? That’s right. Arizona’s mountain regions are heavily forested, with towering pine trees for deer and elk to gleefully leap through.

Oh yes, Northern Arizona is a playground for four-legged friends and fellow humans. Ski through powdery snow; hike up, up, up to Arizona’s highest peak or down, down, down to the base of the Grand Canyon; ride on The Mother Road till you stand on a corner in Winslow, Arizona, and simply take it easy. When you’re in these wooded lands, it’s great to be green.

 

Arizona’s Northern cities

A region of ups and downs: from the floor of the Grand Canyon to the top of Humphreys Peak, the state’s highest mountain. Laid-back Flagstaff is a favorite for skiing, find skyscrapers of earth in Monument Valley, and splash into Lake Powell.
