Awesome! The closest resort to me is Flagstaff's Snowbowl
, which is about a 2 hour drive from Phoenix. There are some years when they don't even open for one day. This year has been good though.
The resort is trying to get approval to make their own snow, which would mean longer seasons for us Arizonians. Right now, they are being blocked by the Native Americans as they claim that the use of treated waste-water for snow-making is sacrilegious and an infraction against the mountain. Hopefully they'll get it through the courts and start making snow soon.
We also have Sunrise Ski resort
, but it takes about 4 hours to drive there from Phoenix, so I prefer to take the shorter drive to Snowbowl.
