  • Alpine skiing

    is one of only three ski resorts in the state of Arizona
    Arizona Snowbowl, [14], is one of only three ski resorts in the state of Arizona. Despite the surrounding desert, Flagstaff is a popular skiing destination for the Southwest due to the high elevation. Interestingly, the Snowbowl is one of the first ten ski resorts established in the United States. Snowbowl is in the San Francisco Mountains, which offer pleasant high-country hiking after the snow melts, including a trail to Humphreys Peak, highest mountain in Arizona. Access to some of the San Franciscos is restricted, as they're sacred to several of the area's Indian tribes.

  • Altitude's Bar and Grill

    2 S Beaver St # 200
    Relaxed atmosphere, great outdoor seating and a cozy fireplace inside for the winter months.
  • Diablo Burger

    120 N. Leroux Street
    Mon-Wed, 11AM-11PM Thurs.-Sat., closed Sun. Although tricky to find and seating is rather limited, this place is one of those extraordinarily rewarding discoveries for the persistent traveler. Their burgers ($8-10) are made from range-raised beef from a ranch just north of Flagstaff, served on an English muffin with a boatload of Belgian-style fries. In fact, all of their ingredients are from local businesses whenever possible. They also offer a handful of good regional beers. Their commitment to doing good by staying local even extends to their billing practices: they don't accept credit cards. Bring cash - you'll be glad you did!
