Last winter, CXC Skiing introduced over 24,000 youth to skiing through its award-winning Nordic Rocks program in 154 schools across the Midwest and Great Lakes (Central Region). We also developed an innovative sit-ski that allows individuals with physical disabilities to enjoy cross country skiing, providing over 300 sit-skis to individuals and local clubs over last 10 years.
