They only get snow there on leap years that end in odd numbers.

Thought their was a member on here or hcs that had posted a couple of ride photos. Sounds like a experience that one wouldn’t pass up on if given the chance.


Doo it !!!

I really thought this was a joke!

 

Now I'm moving as the wife hates cold and snow, she can have warm weather at the new house, I can haul the sled "up the hill" to ride!!! (and I always thought I would be "old" before I moved there. . .)

Flagstaff is fluke snow. My parents live in Messa. Most of the time there is not enough snow to ever ride up there. 2019 spring was a fluke as in snow and so was December of 2019. Where are these trails? My father road his side by side and his Spyder just outside flagstaff in February of this year just before Covid hit. Snow on the tops but not in the basins. He left Arizona and came home to His summer house when it went crazy out there. 

 

I just looked. 40.8 inches total last year at the basins. I found a 50 mile seasonal logging road that is open to snowmobiles about 18 miles north west of flagstaff but no grooming trail systems. 

 

My dad loves running area in late February and March on the Spyder. They are awesome twisty roads and yes snow is on the peaks and mid 50's-60's in the basins

When I lived in Phoenix I tried to search for information about renting snowmobiles in Flagstaff. Had absolutely zero luck and information was almost non existent.

Plenty of places to buy & rent Sea-Doo's and Jet-Ski's though!
