Flagstaff Cabins in the Woods

Snowbowl Chairlift Ride

One of my Flagstaff friends has a really unique volunteer job one day a week. Karen is a ranger at the top of the Arizona Snowbowl Scenic Chairlift ride on the western slope of the San Francisco Peaks. She really enjoys welcoming visitors and answering questions at “The Top of Arizona.” As an Interpretive Ranger, she presents information about the volcanic landscape of northern Arizona, points out the view to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, explains hiking options, and meets folks from all over the world. As a retired Forest Service Public Information Officer and longtime Snowbowl skier, she really knows that mountain.

Karen reminds chairlift riders to be prepared for the high elevation. The temperature at 11,500’ at the top can be 50­º cooler than Phoenix and even 20º cooler than Flagstaff. Along with a jacket or sweatshirt, it’s a good idea to wear sturdy shoes, a hat, sunglasses and bring a water bottle. The chairlift operates Friday through Sundays through the summer and early fall.
