Only 2 hours away from the valley, Flagstaff is a great 1 to 2 day getaway, especially in the winter. Below is our top 5 things to do when you visit in the winter!
Snowboarding in Arizona? Yep… Flagstaff is located in the Coconino National Forest where it snows in the winter. The resort offers 40 trails serviced by 4 lifts and is open from 9am to 4pm daily. Cost of lift tickets ranges from $52 to $62 during non-holiday peak times. Arizona Snowbowl offers occasional specials – make sure to check their website before visiting.
Does the thought of completing obstacles while you are 60 feet above the ground sound exciting to you? If so, then you should visit Flagstaff Extreme Adventure Course! The course is open rain or shine and offers over 70 ariel obstacles that include nets, Tarzan ropes, zip lines an more. Admission is $49 + taxes and fees for adults. You can read more about our experience at the course here.
Downtown Flagstaff is known for several craft breweries and cozy pubs. After a day of snowboarding or a day of being suspended in the air at the adventure course, there is nothing better than a good meal and a beer. With over 20 places to choose from, you won’t be disappointed with the selection. If you love beer, plan an overnight stay and try the Flagstaff Ale Trail.
During the winter (now through 3/15), Flagstaff offers sleigh rides! For a limited time, you can get a 1 hour campfire sleigh ride for 2 for $45. Click here for more information or to grab the deal!
While you are in the downtown area, check out the small quaint area with historical Route 66 decor. There are lots of local dining establishments and the atmosphere is very laid back. The Railroad District is a historic part of the town so take a quick look and snap a few photos.
