The average snowfall in the past is 260 inches, but AZ Snowbowl has been given permission to make snow in hopes of providing a more consistent and enjoyable snow season.

Sunset Terrain Park
For snowboarders and skiers alike, the Sunset Terrain Park features obstacles, spines, rails, and fun boxes in a great location. The fun boxes include a 24-foot flat box, a 24-foot flat down box, a 20-foot C-box, and a 24-foot house box.
