Man Climbs Snow Capped Mountain To Get Pizza

How far would you go for a pizza? We bet not as far as one pizza fan did!

An Arizona man is recovering from hypothermia after he climbed a snow-capped mountain in shorts and a tank top to win a free pizza. The Coconino County Sheriff's Office says the 30-year-old Flagstaff man called for help at Tuesday morning after getting stuck on Mount Elden. Authorities say the man wanted to hike up the mountain early in the morning, despite heavy snow, so he could get to the top before the cutoff time to qualify for a free pizza from a local business.

As the man hiked, the snow got heavier and the temperatures plunged. A Forest Service employee spotted the hiker from a lookout tower and brought him inside until a search-and-rescue crew arrived. There's no word on if the man got his free pizza.
