Top 7 places to play in the snow in Arizona during the holidays

If you are looking to play in the snow this Christmas vacation, you don’t have to go far. In fact, there are a few spots right here in Arizona where you can build a snowman and make snow angels !

Let’s take a look at 88.7 The Pulse’s Top 7 spots!

At number seven, Jacob Lake recently got six inches of snow! Winter weather hovers around a bone chilling 10-15 degrees! Jacob Lake is a small community on the Kaibab Plateau in Coconino County at the junction of U.S. Route 89A and State Route 67 about a five hour drive from Mesa. 

Blowing in at number six, another little known place called Greer, situated in Apache County about four hours from the Valley. Greer is the fifth-highest U.S. city by altitude at 8,356 feet.

And the top five are the usual places like Sedona, which is a pretty awesome place to see snow, especially how it contrasts with the red rocks. Of course, Flagstaff is almost always a guarantee for amazing snowy shots. Another jaw dropping snow spot is Monument Valley. The Mogollon Rim is a must-see every winter!

So where is the number one spot in Arizona to see snowfall? Driving to and seeing the Grand Canyon this time of year is simply magical after snowfall.

Hopefully, this gives you some ideas if you wanted to take friends or family on a fun road trip this holiday to see the snow!

Merry Christmas to all from 88.7 the Pulse!
