Skiing in Scottsdale? not a Chance!

By: Steve Proski

You will never be that cold here in glorious Scottsdale. Your bones will not ache from the damp and you can breathe easy here in our dry and warm climate.

Average temperature charts show the hot summer months can tip into the hundreds, but average around eighty. For the cooler months, December and January record highs in the mid sixties and lows in the upper thirties.

In fact the coldest day ever recorded was nineteen degrees fahrenheit in 1955. The hottest day ever was exactly a hundred degrees different at one hundred and nineteen degrees fahrenheit in 1972.

Although many snowbirds flock to Scottsdale for warmth, the average population of residential retirees is well under the 40% mark.

The weather in Scottsdale does offer seasonal changes, a fact which is often unappreciated by outsiders. The winter time is a good time to enjoy the variety of courses offered by the local community colleges.

Scottsdale is a popular place for retirement and this is reflected in the diverse choice of subjects on offer. From Business courses to Beading, from Personal Growth to Purchasing an Investment Property.

How about Piano for Hopelessly Busy People, or Smart Women can Finish Rich? This community obviously has unique and go ahead people living there.

It is known for its affluent society and culture and has been voted the most livable city as well as wearing its other hat: The West's Most Western Town.
With a nick name like that it is not surprising that it hosts the world-renowned Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show. This annual event, one of several yearly shows held in Scottsdale, attracts thousands of visitors and over 2,000 horses.

The Jaycees Parada del Sol is another famous month-long event which attracts cowboys and cowgirls from all across the nation.

However, other interests are also represented here and every year the FBR Open Golf Tournament is held to the delight of all the Scottsdale golfers. And with over 200 public and private golf courses, there is no shortage of golf enthusiasts here. Scottsdale golf is said to be as good as the game can get. It also offers golfing variety, so if your handicap[ is higher than you would wish, try target golfing. This form of the game, sometimes known as desert golf, was pioneered in Scottsdale.

Other yearly events include the Barrett Jackson Auto Show and the very popular Art Festival.

With so many visitors flocking to what has been quoted as an internationally recognized premier and posh tourist destination, Scottsdale rose to the occasion and boasts the highest number of residential spas per capita! With three new ones just opening this year....who needs skiing?
