Flagstaff

Nestled at the base of Mount Humphrey's, Flagstaff offers that ski town feel in Northern Arizona. It's a perfect escape from the desert on those hot summer days, or a bustling winter sport get away during those colder months. One visit to Flagstaff and your preconcieved notion that Arizona is just a desert will quickly be wiped away.
