No Snow Yet

A solitary patch of snow sits in front of a snow gun Wednesday afternoon at the Arizona Snowbowl. Unseasonably warm weather has prevented sufficient snowmaking so far.

Officials at Arizona Snowbowl announced that unseasonably warm weather has delayed the resort's opening date from Nov. 10 to Nov. 17. 

Warm, sunny days and nighttime temperatures above freezing have made it difficult for crews to make snow on opening trails. Snowbowl crews continue to monitor temperatures and plan to make snow as soon as conditions allow.
