Title: It's SNOWING in Flagstaff (again)
Post by: DBAX on November 10, 2015, 02:21:01 PM
Took the family sledding at Wing Mountain last Saturday, and up to Snowbowl, then Williams..
(Still in love w/ my KO2s btw, they handle great on snow/ice)
Anyone going/gone up from the valley to play?

I just went up to Payson this weekend might plan to go again in 3 weeks though. I saw some snow on the high mountians to the west but it was kinda hot lol.
How much snow fell up there in Flag?

Trooper, not sure how much snow fell last night..
Chuy- My family and I have been staying at the Christopher Creek Lodge for decades. It's great for couples or families w/ young kids anytime of the year. They have a good variety of accommodations from motel rooms to "bunkhouses" and freestanding cabins. They have a sister property too "the Grey Hackle", just up the road if the lodge is sold out.. When staying in Flag, for a cabin, I recommend the AZ Mountain Inn / Cabins (dog friendly too) or for something more refined, the Sonesta ES Suites. If you're around Strawberry, the Cabins on the Hill are great too w/ nice owners on site.
We have 8 or 9 tents and a shit ton of camping equipment for every season, but sometimes the wife likes a roof and running water..

Sometimes it pays have Mondays off..
I drove up Sunday night and camped.  I did a night hike with a friend, then did a longer hike the next morning.
It rained and snowed most of the night and all day.
KO2s did well. I didn't have any traction issues.

When staying in Flag, for a cabin, I recommend the AZ Mountain Inn / Cabins (dog friendly too)
Pretty good chance they'll be booked, I'd call ASAP. Have fun either way  :)

We spent a white Xmas in Christopher Creek. Miserably cold and howling wind though  :(
New Years in San Diego was much more nice. Boogie boarding on PB New Years Day FTW.
Today from Flagstaff Nordic Center-
