Snowflake is located in Navajo County.
Accommodations in Snowflake include Cedar Motel.
Less than twenty-five miles to the south, the White Mountains' conifer wilderness climbs to 7000+ feet.
Snowflake does receive modest amounts of quickly-melting winter snowfall. Snowflake was named by early Mormon leaders, Erastus Snow and William Jordan Flake.
Contrary to the name, the town's geographic location is spared harsh winters, and summer months bring cool breezes that rarely let the temperature rise to the record heat Arizona is known for.
