Gracie Gold Joins Ice Den Skating Staff

The Ice Den is proud to announce that two-time U.S. Champion (2014, 2016) and Olympian (2014) Gracie Gold has joined its professional figure skating coaching staff.  Gold joins the largest coaching staff in the state, with over 50 talented coaches including fellow Olympians Steven Cousins and Naomi Lang. 

With the Winter Olympic Games fast-approaching, the timing of Gold's introduction to the Ice Den community couldn't be more ideal.  The knowledge and experience she will share with young skaters looking to follow the same dreams is priceless.

Gold first started skating at the age of 8 years old and will teach advanced skaters of all ages at both the Ice Den Scottsdale and Ice Den Chandler.  At the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Gold placed fourth in the Single Ladies event and earned a Bronze Medal for her contributions to the team event.  With her addition, the Ice Den continues to enhance its nationally recognized programs by offering valley skaters the opportunity to train and perform under the guidance of world class athletes who understand the conditioning, commitment and drive required to compete and the highest level.

About the Ice Den
The Ice Den Scottsdale, located on Bell Road just east of the 101 Freeway, is a 150,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art ice skating and entertainment center and still home to the NHL's Arizona Coyotes Hockey Club who practice at the facility on a regular basis. The Ice Den is also home to a Mountainside Fitness Platinum training center, OSR Physical Therapy, an Over Easy breakfast diner, Chilly Bean Café, Divalicious women's boutique and 18 Degrees, North Scottsdale's coolest neighborhood grill.

The Ice Den Chandler, acquired in January 2014, is located on West Harrison just east of the I-10 off Ray Road.  The building underwent a 4-month estimated $5 million renovation immediately upon purchase.  Highlights of the renovation include two completely rebuilt ice surfaces to enhance the skating experience, as well as new flooring and lighting.  In addition, guests enjoy new amenities including a Coyotes Ice Sports pro shop for hockey and figure skaters, enhanced spectator viewing areas, 18 Degrees Express, Chilly Bean Café and Ice Den Conditioning.

2018 Cure-A-Thon

2018 Cure A Thon will be held this Saturday at Saguaro High School in Scottsdale.  The goal is to raise money for brain tumor research. This is put on by students from across the valley. Last year students raised more than $200,000 with more than 3000 students in attendance.

Students Supporting Brain Tumor Research (SSBTR) was founded in 2002, shortly after three students, from the Paradise Valley School District, were diagnosed with and ultimately succumbed to brain tumors. When research pointed out that this particular disease was becoming the number one cancer killer of teenagers, a decision was made to do something about it.

The money has since been distributed to the Barrow Neurological Institute, Phoenix Children's Hospital, the National Brain Tumor Society, and TGen at the Award and Check Presentations in April. An amazing 93% of every dollar raised goes directly to these institutions to fund brain tumor research.
