FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. --There's still a chance for more snow in the high country, but some Flagstaff locals and an outdoor retailer said they're disappointed there wasn't more snow Wednesday.

Not too many sleds were sold at Peace Surplus, but because of the cold weather, some gloves and hats were sold.

Peace Surplus employees were expecting more snow in Flagstaff and hoping for a boost in business, but instead they only rented out three pairs of skis and four snowboards.

It wasn't only disappointing to the shop, but it was disappointing for locals like Matt Letendere as well.

"It didn't stick at all,” he said. “It just kind of came and went. I was hoping it would be our first big storm of the season, so it was kind of disappointing."

But 20 minutes south of Flagstaff at Munds Park, it was foggy, visibility was low, and there was a good amount of snow on the ground. It was enough to roll a few snow balls, but it looked as if most people stayed inside to keep warm.

As 3TV’s crew passed Munds Park, things cleared up.

On Interstate 17 heading toward Flagstaff, there were plenty of snow plows but no plowing.

There was a dusting of snow on trees and along the highway, but the closer the 3TV crew got to Flagstaff, the less snow there was.

In the afternoon, Arizona Snowbowl reported that 2 inches had fallen over the last 24 hours.
