Welcome! Our two communities offer a wealth of opportunities for residents and new visitors.
Snowflake Heritage Foundation 12 Days of Christmas!
ABOUT OUR COMMUNITIES
Snowflake, founded in 1878 by Mormon pioneers, perches on the northern flank of Arizona's White Mountains. Stretching along the ever-flowing Silver Creek, the Snowflake valley was populated by Ancestral Puebloan Indians for several thousand years. Their petroglyphs and kiva ruins are scattered among the scented juniper and sagebrush canyons and ridges.
The Town of Snowflake is the northernmost community in the White Mountains. At an elevation of 5,600 feet, the town looks across a sweeping plateau to distant mesas and mountain ranges.
Contrary to its name, the community enjoys a mild year-round climate - less than 10" of annual snowfall. Blue skies and clean air are perfect for golf, horseback riding or RV adventures!
