Arizona Snowbowl extends season through April due to massive snowfall
PHOENIX — Skiers, snowboarders and fans of the views that Arizona’s high country has to offer, we have good news for you: Arizona Snowbowl is extending its season after receiving a large amount of snow this winter.
The Snowbowl announced Thursday it would extend its season through April after receiving more than 20 feet of snow this past winter.
Daily operations at the resort will continue through March 26, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and the Snowbowl will also be open every weekend in April from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
That was not the only good news the Snowbowl had to offer Thursday: A young golden retriever named Ava has completed her training and is officially an avalanche rescue dog.
The extended season should be good news for winter sports lovers who were disappointed by the Snowbowl’s delayed opening in 2016. Even though it was expected to open early, Snowbowl was forced to delay it due to unusually warm temperatures.
The Snowbowl also opened its first “high-speed six-person chairlift,” called the Grand Canyon Express, this month for non-skiers and snowboarders.
If you are looking to hit the slopes, you can purchase lift tickets here for as low as $46 on weekdays. Snowbowl is also offering a “Spring Break” deal for lift tickets, rental equipment and gift cards for $29 or more.
