Flagstaff is a great ski location. Inside the Coconino National Forest are 3 resorts. There is the Flagstaff Nordic Center for cross country skiers. And of course, San Francisco Peaks (webcam) and the Snow Bowl Resort, which are long time favorite Arizona ski resorts.
By finding accommodation in Flagstaff or staying somewhere a little further afield and making the easy day trip to the run, you can achieve a more rewarding luxury experience. If you are renting ski gear however remember to pick this up prior to arriving to avoid the sometimes long lines. Otherwise you should not have any problems.

There are places to stay closer to the ski run at the Snow Bowl that offer a nights stay but skimp on the luxury. For example, Ski Lift Lodge offers budget accommodation. Although some find these rooms good value, they are especially sparse. Then if you don't mind the basic food and digs style ski camp inn this should do you fine and save you a few dollars on a ski lift. The old lifts operate along a long run and you can hop off at your level.
