Summerhaven is named very appropriately considering how many Tucsonans and visitors escape there from the summer heat and to enjoy skiing in the winter. Summerhaven sits at 8,200 feet elevation, approximately 1,000 feet below the peak of Mt. Lemmon, approximately 29 miles north of Tucson. Numerous recreational amenities are offered on the mountain, including hiking, camping, fishing, birding, skiing, sledding and rock climbing. Mt. Lemmon’s Ski Valley provides skiing from December into March. The University of Arizona’s Mt. Lemmon SkyCenter offers unique astronomy camps for kids and adults.
