“It’s only a little club . . . but we do big things.” - Chummy Broomhall
Chisholm Ski Club is located at Black Mountain of Maine Ski Area in Rumford, Maine. The Club has a rich tradition which dates back to the early days of the 20th century at its Spruce Street location and its mid 1900's days at Scottie's Mountain. Over the years the Club has hosted several world class nordic skiing events, including the 1950 World Championships, 1976 NCAA Cross Country Skiing Championships, 1991 National Biathlon Championships, 1993 US Cross Country Skiing Championships, 1993 U.S. Masters Cross Country Skiing Championships, 1996 National Junior Olympics, 1996 Chevy Truck U.S. Nationals, the 1999 NCAA Cross Country Skiing Championship, the 2003 Chevy Truck US Cross Country Championships, the 2004 Chevrolet US Cross Country Championships, the 2009 NCAA Cross Country Skiing Championships, the 2010 USCSA National Championships, and the 2011 and 2012 US Cross Country Championships.
We will be having one more Black Mountain work day on Saturday November 15th to finish up little projects on the trails, stadium, and timing building.
Meet at Muriel's Kitchen at Black Mountain at 8:00 am for coffee, donuts and to pick up an assignment. Lunch will also be provided. Now that fall sports are over, we are hoping to see local ski team members come out and help for a day on the trails!
Bring along gloves, clippers, weed wakers, chainsaws, drills, saws, hoes racks, shovels and paint clothes.
See you soon. The snow will be flying before we know it.
Although there's still snow on the ground as we post this, it's not too early to be thinking about hiking. The Peak-A-Week club has announced their usual half year of Wednesday afternoon hikes. Pass this on to your friends who are hikers at heart. All level of hikers are encouraged. Expect SNOW on the first few hikes. Bring snacks, water, and a flashlight. We'll meet to carpool from the Information parking lot in Rumford at 5:00 p.m. The first hike, to the Mexico Ledge, is scheduled for April 16th.
