Flagstaff, Arizona - Backcountry of The San Francisco Peaks and Kachina Peaks Wilderness
Format and Limitations Statement
High pressure predominates with normal to above average temperatures. There is not sufficient snow to ski/ride the backcountry, nor create avalanches.
For Flagstaff, this fall has been the 4th warmest on record and the driest on record
. New record high temperatures were set over the Thanksgiving holiday. We did get a couple of dustings earlier this fall, but the peaks are now virtually snow-free. Do a snow dance, burn some skis, pray for snow. As soon as we get a backcountry base and avalanches become possible, we will update this summary and send out text/email alerts. Sign up for alerts
