Their help was invaluable.We put our new timing equipment into action at this race and it worked flawlessly. We would like to thank The Summit Foundation for helping us purchase this equipment, and Gary Giberson who helped with some of the costs and the set up of the equipment.All the skiers raced with new bibs, which were purchased through the generosity of Dr. Peter Janes and Vail-Summit Orthopedics. Thank you so much.Also, we would like to thank Woody Van Gundy and the Backcountry Brewery for hosting such a fabulous awards dinner.Thanks to the many Summit Nordic Ski Club parents who worked very hard to make this such a successful event.
