The roof of Flagstaff's only ice rink collapsed under the weight of several feet of snow on January 21, 2010, leaving hundreds of local hockey players and figure skaters without a place to skate. The rink is home to the Northern Arizona University hockey team.
The five-day storm dumped 54 inches of snow and 2 inches of rain, making it the second worst winter storm in the city's recorded history.
The rink was named after a young local hockey player who was killed by a drunk driver on I-17 near New River, Arizona.
In less than 10 months, the building was rebuilt and reopened to the public.
