Arizona Snowbowl: Top to Bottom

Continuing my award-winning Top to Bottom video series, here is a POV ski descent of the Arizona Snowbowl via the Spur Catwalk, Lower Bowl, Logjam, Wild Turkey, and Round Up—or, as the locals like to call it, "Bowl". Chair was running smoothly today, crowds were light, and sun was shining, so all is forgiven. The Snowbowl is on the 12,600' San Francisco Peaks outside Flagstaff. Vertical drop is from 11,500' atop the Agassiz chair to about 9500' at the Agassiz lodge, for a nice 2000' ride. I suppose technically I should have skied over to Hart Prairie to get to the very bottom of the resort but...nah.

    Nice! Talk about a slide through memory lane. It’s been longer than I care to admit since I skied there.
