Uphill Access - Ridge Side Map

Arizona Snowbowl allows uphill access for skinning, snowshoeing and hiking within certain areas and outside of lift operating hours. This route called "Ridge Side" is usually off limits due to operations like snowmaking and winching, but may be open during periods of exceptional snow cover. Look for the sign in the parking lot that states what's available for the day.

Description

Snowbowl also requires an online waiver for all uphill users. This can be found online, along with more information, at the resort's Uphill Access page.
