An interesting place to visit. We visited on a stormy afternoon during monsoon season which kept us from completely viewing the area. Found the area adequate but nothing special.

From the height of 11650 feet I could see the North side of the Grand Canyon; even on a cloudy day. The visistas were tremendous.

I don't thin you can go sledding in the Snowbowl area. However, there are hills in Flaggstaff but I an not sure where they are. If you google sledding and flagstaff you might have some luck!
