Flagstaff Snow Park is located about 2 hours north of Phoenix, and near Flagstaff, AZ. The park area offers tubing and a place for families to enjoy snow play! This special guest post is from PHXkids follower Andrea Shafer. Shared with permission.
We got there on a Saturday around 9:45 am (opens at 9), and left around 4:15 pm. It was awesome! Honestly, you could do everything in the 4-hour time slots, but we opted for the whole day tickets and did not disappoint! We took breaks and tried not to rush things.
When it got crowded around 1pm, with the new group coming in, we took the time to go have hot cocoa/cinnamon buns (highly suggest them!) and do the s’mores. And have another snowball fight!
The bright-colored tubes go faster because they’re so new, which was super fun. On that note, beware of congestion on the Orange slope, especially with littles. Everything else is monitored by workers and only allowed to go down the slopes when they’re cleared.
We stayed at the Best Western Pony Soldier Inn. It was cheap and did what was needed for a two nights stay since we were really only in the room to sleep and change. The breakfast was good and free!
