FLAGSTAFF -- The day Valley snowbunnies have waited for is finally here. Arizona Snowbowl opened Thursday morning.

"It takes a lot but we love it, we live for opening day and today it's going to be a great day," said Dave Smith with Snowbowl. "Expecting a couple thousand people up here to enjoy the snow."

Everyone is excited for the brand-new season at Snowbowl.

Thousands were ready to go when Snowbowl officially opened. The lifts started moving. Folks strapped on their skis and snowboards and hit the slopes.

If you want to head up there, you just need to purchase a lift ticket. Snowbowl broke a record this year for seasonal lift passes, which are still available.
