Arizona Snowbowl Scenic Chairlift


TripAdvisor Traveler Rating


Take in the dramatic scenery of northern Arizona from a bird's eye view by riding
Snowbowl's Scenic Chairlift. From the top, enjoy glimpses of the Grand Canyon, panoramic scenery of the Red Rocks in Sedona, and the impressive volcanic field around Flagstaff. Join us for interpretive talks, hikes, rounds of disc golf, or treat yourself to lunch with a view at Agassiz Lodge Restaurant.

The chairlift ride is 25 minutes each way, offering great opportunities for photography, wildlife observation, or just enjoying the peaceful atmosphere of the San Francisco Peaks. When lunchtime rolls around, make your way back to the base area for a delicious home-style meal! A free disc golf course and many hiking trails are available at the base of the chairlift and around the peaks, as well. And as summer changes into fall, there is no better place to see the golden aspens.

Snowbowl remains open through fall colors in mid-October.
