FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. - With White Friday just two days away, Arizona Snowbowl is opening at the perfect time for you to work off your turkey feast. With early season snow on the ground and an expert snowmaking crew hard at work for the past two weeks, Snowbowl is excited to announce its first day -- White Friday, Nov. 29, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.

Lifts that will be open this Friday include Sunset Triple (654 vertical feet, 2,675 feet long), Hart Prairie Double (650 vertical feet, 3,200 feet long) and Little Spruce Conveyor. The runs available to skiers and snowboarders are Southern Belle (8.5 acres), Hart Prairie (31 acres) and the Little Spruce Conveyor. Great terrain to start out the season and prep those winter legs for skiing and riding. Hart Prairie Lodge will be open with restaurant, equipment rental, sport shop, and ski school offering lessons for all ages. Guest services will be open for Season Pass pickup and gift card sales.

"Our hopes for the latest winter storm fell a little short of being able to open more terrain with a quality product for our customers." said Jason Stratton, director of sales and marketing. "This is a perfect example of blending Mother Nature's efforts with machine made snow. The cold temperatures associated with the storm allowed snowmaking operations to continue producing snow around-the-clock throughout the storm."
