Located at the base of Arizona’s highest mountain, the 12,633-foot Humphrey’s Peak, Basecamp at Arizona Snowbowl has 26 newly renovated cabins and rooms that are the closest lodging to Snowbowl’s ski lifts. 

Everything is new in the cabins and rooms from the plank flooring, southwestern throw rugs, furniture, bedding, big-screen TVs, and accent art, including photography of the slopes at Snowbowl. 

Guests are sure to enjoy the cabins’ front porches that feature colorful Adirondack chairs and are perfect for stargazing just outside Flagstaff, which in 2001 became the world’s first International Dark Sky City.

After meetings and outdoor adventures during the day, groups and individuals can gather at the full-service Basecamp Restaurant with a full bar serving cocktails, wine and a vast array of Arizona microbrews and a menu featuring house-smoked barbecue entrées, burgers, salads and vegetarian options. 

Located approximately 7,400 feet above sea level, Basecamp is in the midst of the 1.8-million-acre Coconino National Forest, home to the largest stand of ponderosa pine trees in the world. 

Set to debut on December 15, 2021, Montage Big Sky is centrally located within Big Sky’s 3,530-acre Spanish Peaks enclave and features 139 guest room suites with a mountain modern design and 39 residences.
