FLAGSTAFF, AZ — Arizona Snowbowl said Monday morning that it reached its capacity limits for the day and that Snowbowl Road, which leads to the mountain, would remain closed for the rest of the day.
Also, lift tickets, rentals, and lessons are sold-out for the rest of the month -- through Jan. 31, the ski hill said on its Twitter accounts, @AZSBUpdates, which it is using to share frequent updates on its operations.
Winter storms dropped several inches of snow -- nearly two feet in some spots -- over the weekend, and several more inches of snow are expected to fall throughout the day on Monday.
Due to the amount of snow and hazardous conditions it creates, the Arizona Department of Transportation and DPS have asked travelers not to travel to northern Arizona if they do not have to.
Several roads have also been closed due to the adverse conditions.
