The Arizona Snowbowl is wrapping up a good season.
The ski area near Flagstaff will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. through Sunday, then will close for the season.
“This year, we’ve had more than 130,000 people come up,” said the Snowbowl’s Dave Smith. “I think we’re looking at about 135,000. I haven’t seen the numbers lately, but it certainly has been a successful season. We’re not really looking forward to winding down, but summer’s just about here.”
Another winter storm is moving in as the season winds down.
“At this point, the forecast is calling for just a minimal amount of snow showers,” Smith said. “We wish it was a lot more, but all in all, it’s been a phenomenal season. We’ve had a blast.”
The final weekend of skiing will celebrate the Snowbowl’s second straight good season.
“We’ve got 30-dollar adult lift tickets and 12-dollars for juniors ages 8 to 12,” Smith said. “The last weekend, we’re going to go out with a big bang — lots of party atmosphere, lots of fun. We want people to come up and join us.”
Smith said the Snowbowl has had about 198 inches of snow this season. It opened Dec. 20 and will close April 5.
Not a ton of snow, but it came early and set the table for a long winter season.
