2015-16 Winter Season: Crowley Pit is now open for the winter season with no amenities. Toilets and dumpsters are anticipated to be in place by November 27, 2015. Until then, please come prepared to pack out your own trash.
Crowley Pit is a large depression along Route 180 north of Flagstaff which makes an excellent place to enjoy some sledding in the winter snow. The snow-play area is undeveloped and there are no facilities.
