Flagstaff received a lot of snow this week, which is perfect for the “Cooler Runnings” event this afternoon at the Flagstaff Snow Park at Ft. Tuthill. Teams will slide down the hill, in very decorative and interesting sleds made from a Canyon Cooler. Participating teams make a donation to the Flagstaff Family Food Center and they receive a cooler to turn into what they hope is the winning sled. This year, the event will be attended by two special guests, Macy Tarlton and Riley Tejcek, who are teammates with the USA Women’s Bobsled Team. This year’s event is sold out, but check during the year online at canyoncoolers.com for information on next year’s event. Also, you can check out Macy and Riley in March as they compete in Lake Placid, New York, which will be on ESPN.
