The Chisholm Ski Club has launched it's annual membership drive. The club is made up of volunteers who's goal is to provide outstanding alpine and nordic skiing opportunities for young athletes at Black Mountain Ski Resort. All skiing enthusiasts are welcome as members of the Chisholm Ski Club. Presently we are made up of skiers, parents, former Chisholm Ski Club skiers and other people interested in supporting our mission. Annual dues of $15.00 per family are due in July of each year.
The NENSA U16 Championships, originally schedule to be held at Black Mountain Ski Resort, were moved to Gould Academy's Pine Hill Ski Trails in Bethel, Maine due to unusually warm and wet conditions. The evergreen lined trails were able to survive the last season's heavy rains and warm weather, thanks in great part by the volunteers who worked tirelessly to prepare the trails, ensuring the event was not cancelled.
The Chisholm Ski Club, Black Mountain Ski Resort, and NENSA are combining to host the 2016 Qualifying races for Nordic skiers hoping to earn a spot on the Maine teams that will represent our state at Eastern High School Nordic Championships to be held at Rikert Nordic Center in Ripton, VT or picked for the U16 Championships to be held at Black Mountain of Maine in Rumford, ME.
