Mammoth Nordic Foundation recently provided Jim Tabb, the Adapted Physical Education Specialist for the Mono County Office of Education, with 23 sets of new Fischer Sprint Crown Junior XC skis, bindings, boots and poles. Brian Knox with Mammoth Nordic offered his sincere thanks to Brian Ellison of Brian’s Bikes and Cross Country Skis and Dan Hill of Fischer Nordic for providing the new XC gear at cost, allowing the $3,500 committed to this project from Mammoth Nordic to provide twice the equipment retail pricing would cover.
“A warm thank you to Mammoth Nordic, Brian’s Bikes and Cross Country Skis and Fischer Nordic for setting up our Adapted Physical Education program with this beautiful Fischer XC ski equipment,” said Tabb. “Having our own cache of nice new Nordic skis, boots, and poles will allow our students to maximize activity and learning time right in our own back yard. The kids seem to really love the freedom and tranquility of skiing out in nature on a regular basis. We’ve already racked up several hours of touring on our new equipment and look forward to endless good times down the road.”
