FLAGSTAFF, AZ — Skiers and snowboarders have one last weekend to hit the slopes this season at Arizona Snowbowl.
After receiving a total of 344" of snow between November and May, the Flagstaff ski resort announced on its social media channels Tuesday that it would end its "longest season ever" after this weekend, May 18-19, 2019.
