Tucson – December 2022 – Snow on the Mountain

One of the great things about living in Tucson is you can have a nice warm 60 degree winter day and make the 25 mile drive up Mt Lemmon to snow!

This particular snow has not yet left enough snow for skiing, but it is getting close.

The road to the very top is always closed off for the winter, but it makes a great sledding hill.

The town of Summerhaven does a great business when the snow flies, and the road crews clear the road up the mountain.

As you make your way back down the mountain the snow gets less and less, until once you are under 6000′ elevation it is gone.

And before you know it you are back in the desert and 60 degrees.
