Tallon Noble's Invitation to Sponsorship


Tallon is a member of the Strathcona Nordics and is now skiing at Telemark. Tallon has been an exciting racer to follow and he has just begun his race season for this year. He has many goals this year and needs financial support to accomplish them. For those of you who know Tallon, know of his work ethic and focus. Here are some words from Tallon,

My name is Tallon Noble and I am a cross-country skier originally from Courtenay, Vancouver Island, now living and training in Kelowna, BC. My love for skiing was nurtured on Mt. Washington and grew exponentially as I joined the race team under the coaching of Dave Battison. By the time of Dave's unfortunate passing, he had already ingrained an instinct of training and racing that I will always carry with me.

Over the past few years I have slowly moved up the Canadian ranks under the meticulous coaching of Andrea Stapff, finally checking off national podium performances at the 2017 Canadian Ski Nationals in Canmore. After graduation, I decided to join my friends and coach Adam Elliot in Kelowna with the Team Telemark. With new teammates and new training environments I am ecstatic for the snow to fall and to see how my hard work will pay off.
