When Bob Chambers recently passed away, the family, at Bob’s request, asked that in lieu of flowers donations should go to Ogden Valley Adaptive Sports. Bob, a beloved local icon, All-American ski racer and founder of Alpine Sports, was long an advocate of helping those with disabilities to enjoy the thrill of winter sports.
According to his daughter Peggie, “Forty years ago, when Dad was aware of someone who was disabled, he would go to his shop and fashion some form of skis, or sled, that would allow them to enjoy the sport he loved.”
A new mono-ski was purchased with the donations, and Ogden Valley Adaptive Sports affixed a plaque to the ski to commemorate Bob’s contributions. Pictured with the new mono-ski are Bob’s wife Mary, his daughters Bobbie and Peggie, and Katie.
