Winter sports in Arizona? Yes, there are. And the season is almost here. That is hard to believe when it was above 100 degrees just a few short weeks ago.
The Arizona Snowbowl, located on the San Francisco Peaks north of Flagstaff, is expected to open Nov. 16. Sunrise Park Resort, located in the White Mountains of eastern Arizona on the Fort Apache Indian Reservation, and Mt. Lemmon Ski Valley in the Santa Catalina Mountains northeast of Tucson both have opening dates dependent upon their individual amounts of snowfall.
Mt. Lemon is the southernmost ski resort in the United States.
