The snowplay map is a product of a multi-agency collaboration between the City of Flagstaff, Coconino County, Arizona Department of Transportation, the Coconino National Forest, residents and more.

The new winter information hotline at 1-844-256-SNOW, will be updated daily through the season as conditions change and provides detailed visitor information as winter recreation areas experience operational changes.

A mobile friendly winter recreation website can be easily accessed at flagstaffarizona.org and provides essential information for enjoying wintertime in Flagstaff including safety tips, locations and descriptions for ski and snowplay recreation areas, and a list of local shops to rent winter recreation equipment.

Driving directions from various locations are included and alternate routes to avoid traffic congestion are marked. This map is available as a PDF download from the website as well.
