CANCER CLIMB TO DELAY SCENIC LIFT OPENING AND LIMIT SNOWBOWL ROAD ACCESS
Flagstaff, AZ – The American Cancer Society’s 26th annual Climb to Conquer Cancer is being hosted by the Arizona Snowbowl on Saturday, August 16th.
This popular fundraiser has over 4,000 registered hikers making the 7 mile journey from the bottom of Snowbowl Road to the finish at the Hart Prairie Lodge. Starting at 6:30 a.m., hikers will be walking up Snowbowl Road. For the safety of these hikers, Snowbowl Rd will be closed between 6:30 a.m. and 12-Noon. The Scenic Chairlift and the Agassiz Lodge Restaurant will have a delayed opening of Noon. Those planning to enjoy a hike in the San Francisco Peaks should arrive prior to 6:30 a.m. or wait until after Snowbowl Road reopens to public travel. This will help ensure the safety of everyone on Snowbowl Road.
Media contact for the Climb to Conquer Cancer event is Alyssa Schmieder (928) 526-7346
