For the more adventurous, be sure to mountain bike through Sedona, horseback ride at a dude ranch, and hike the Arizona National Scenic Trail. Then, explore some of the state’s most impressive peaks, like Camelback Mountain and the Chiricahua Mountains. Finally, beat the heat and ski through the state’s powdered mountaintops.
