Driving Tour to the Snowbowl

July 10 @ 8:30 am 5:00 pm

What to do if you’re living in the Valley of the Sun and it’s the middle of the long, hot summer? Get in your Porsche and join your PCA friends on a trip to the cool climes of Northern Arizona!

A midweek drive means we’ll avoid the weekend traffic heading north and we’ll experience less congestion at our destination, the Arizona Snowbowl. The route will take us up the Black Canyon Freeway to Flagstaff. If you’ve driven up the Black Canyon as many times as many of us have, you tend to miss the fact that it is beautifully scenic almost the entire way from Rock Springs to Flagstaff. And with a string of Porsches along, it makes it that much more interesting.

After making our way through Flagstaff, we’ll head out Fort Valley Road and then up the twisting curves and beautiful forest scenery to the Agassiz Lodge, where we can kick back and relax as we enjoy lunch with mountain views at the highest-elevation restaurant on the mountain.

After lunch, take an optional ride on the Arizona Gondola:

“View the state in a truly awe-inspiring way and experience the vast beauty of Northern Arizona from the top of the Arizona Gondola! As the gondola travels up to 11,500 feet, see the cinder cone volcanic field, the red rocks in Sedona, and as far as the Grand Canyon on a clear day.” (“Scenic Gondola Rides”)

Though this is easily a day trip, some of us may choose to spend the night in Flag, taking advantage of the cool elevations before heading back home to the desert.
