A charming little town in Navajo County, Arizona, did you know Snowflake routinely finds mention in compilations of the most unusually named places around the world! That said, there is nothing unusual about it as a fabulous relocation destination for families. It offers a tranquil climate, easy access to varied recreation, an old-world vibe, and an economy that benefits greatly from its location in the White Mountains, a region popular among tourists and natural resource-based industries.
Most industries based in Snowflake derive from the agriculture, food processing, and bio-energy sectors. Education and government agencies also employ a sizable chunk of the local population. Largest individual employers in the city include Novo Power, Green House, PFFJ, and Northland Pioneer College. Snowflake's proximity to Interstate-40 (via Highway 77) and freight rail services to large cities like Phoenix and Flagstaff further prop up its economy.
Outdoor recreation options in Snowflake are wide-ranging owing to the contrasting nature of the city. While you can enjoy skiing down south, to the west are numerous lakes scattered amidst the vast mountain ranges, where fishing and swimming are par for the course. You can also visit one of America's most unusual parks, Petrified Forest Park, and take in the sights of the oldest continually inhabited Navajo Indian village.
The city also boasts of a wonderfully maintained golf course that recently added another 9-holes to its existing 18-hole course. The town's most famous community event is Pioneer Days, where among other things you can enjoy a street arts and crafts fair, rodeos, and brilliant local food.
In the eyes of most real estate experts, housing prices in Snowflake haven't kept pace with the town's growth. For instance, a spacious and well-appointed home covering an area of roughly 1,700 sq. ft. while offering a minimum of three beds and two baths can be yours for a scarcely believable price tag hovering in the lower 200Ks. Built by acclaimed names like Clayton, Twin Pine, and Hider, these homes are in addition to 'build on your lot' custom homes where you call the shots entirely.
