Arizona Snowbowl Tuesday, June 11, 2013 SNOWBOWL OFFERS UNIQUE SUNSET CHAIRLIFT RIDE AND BARBECUE FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. - While much of Arizona is living up to its hot, dry reputation with triple digit heat, Arizona Snowbowl is offering cool temperatures and cool views with the return of the Sunset Chairlift Ride! This Friday, June 14, and every second Friday of the month through October, the Sunset Chairlift will run from 3 to 6 p.m. A free barbecue dinner comes with the purchase of a Chairlift Ride ticket and live music! National Weather Service meteorologists say this Friday, Sunset lift riders can expect clear, sunny skies, as monsoon thunderstorm clouds won't start building until early July. "The view should be terrific. It looks like we'll have a westerly flow between now and Friday, which should push smoke and haze from the New Mexico fire away from us," said meteorologist George Howard. "The higher you go, the longer you'll see the sun sinking into the West. Right now the warmest temperature at 11,000 ...

We Can Now Make Snow From Poop. But Should We? A parched ski resort desperately needs water for its fake snow. Its solution? Sewage. —By Kiera Butler | January/February 2013 Issue 25 Gary Taxali Sometimes a bad application of a good idea can make the idea itself seem worse. Examples abound: communism, social Darwinism, the last two seasons of The Office. And then there's Arizona Snowbowl, a ski resort outside Flagstaff that's poised to become the first to make all of its artificial snow from reclaimed sewage water. In wetter regions, resorts often get that water from nearby lakes or rivers, "but we simply don't have those resources," says resort general manager JR Murray. So Snowbowl intends to pump as much as 1.5 million gallons of reclaimed water each day from a source roughly 15 miles away. Now one could argue—and many have—that Snowbowl never should have been built here in the first place. Perched atop a 9,000-foot extinct volcano in the scenic San Francisco Peaks, it has been plagued by water s ...
"Watch out where the huskies go, and don't you ski on yellow snow..." January 11, 2013, 6:02 pm24 Comments Discolored Slopes Mar Debut of Snow-Making Effort By LESLIE MACMILLAN Rudy Preston Yellowish traces (look closely) at Arizona Snowbowl, where snow made from wastewater was deployed for the first time over the holidays. After a decade of legal battles, a ski resort in Northern Arizona recently became the first in the world to make artificial snow totally out of sewage effluent. On Dec. 24, Arizona Snowbowl fired up its snow guns for the first time, and to everyone’s surprise, the snow that blasted onto the mountain was yellow. The discolored snow has sharpened an already fraught conflict. Snowbowl’s manager, J. R. Murray, said the problem was caused by rusty residue in the new snow-making equipment that carries the wastewater from neighboring Flagstaff, where it is piped directly from the town’s sewage treatment plant. But Taylor McKinnon of the Center for Biological Diversity, a conservation gr ...
--Good job! Thomas and others. We remember your helping hand with the Desert Rock Blockade! Rust in pipes cited as brown snow cause Gallup Independent December 28, 2012 By Kathy Helms Diné Bureau FLAGSTAFF — Thomas Johnston, of Pagosa Springs, Colo., and a local group called Sacred Mountain Defenders staged a protest earlier this week at the Arizona Snowbowl to express their opposition to the use of reclaimed wastewater for artificial snowmaking at the ski resort. They went away astounded. “We had a little protest there in the parking lot at the ski area. It was on Christmas Eve and almost nobody showed up. We saw the snow canons that they had been intending to use and walked over to take a look at them, and sure enough, that snow was just brown for three acres of what we could see right there,” Johnston said Wednesday. “I was stunned because I thought there was a restraining order against it. I know the Hopis had filed some kind of an injunction. “So I went up to one of the operators and I sai ...

Resort’s Snow Won’t Be Pure This Year; It’ll Be Sewage FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — Klee Benally, a member of the Navajo tribe, has gone to the mountains just north of here to pray, and he has gone to get arrested. He has chained himself to excavators; he has faced down bulldozers. For 10 years, the soft-spoken activist has fought a ski resort’s expansion plans in the San Francisco Peaks that include clear-cutting 74 acres of forest and piping treated sewage effluent onto a mountain to make snow. But he appears to be losing the battle. In February, a federal appeals court ruled in favor of the ski resort’s upgrade plans, ending a legal saga fought by a coalition of environmental groups and 13 American Indian tribes, which consider the mountain sacred and view the wastewater snow as a desecration. This coming ski season, the resort, Arizona Snowbowl, will become the first ski resort in the world to use 100 percent sewage effluent to make artificial snow. “It’s a disaster, culturally and environmental ...
