Vasaloppet USA:
Tom Giese Skier Development Fund

Tom Giese Skier Development Fund

Honoring the late Tom Giese, ski coach, community leader, and father of seven-time Vasaloppet USA champion Chad Giese. The mission of the Tom Giese Skier Development Fund is to continue helping the development of youth skiers through a wide range of activities such as providing funding for equipment, training programs, camps and national competitions, and coaching.

December 2023.

We would like to extend a sincere thank you to all who contributed to the Tom Giese Skier Development Fund!  Your support got the fund off the ground, helped local skiers at all levels, and will make Tom’s “be a skier” spirit a lasting part of the community.

The TGSDFund continues to support young skiers in the Mora community. This fall we donated 10 pairs of ski poles and 5 pairs of ski boots to the Mora High School ski team for the 2023-24 ski season! 

Please help us continue to support our mission.If you know of any young skiers in need of support, please contact the Vasaloppet USA office at or call 320-679-2629

Be a Skier,
The Giese Family
