“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.
The Chisholm Ski Club fall workday is scheduled for Saturday, October 17th. Muriel's Kitchen will be open for coffee and donuts at 8:00 AM. A hot lunch will be provided at noon.
There will be projects requiring carpentry tools. Other projects on the trails will require rakes and hoes as well as clippers, weedwackers and saws. There will be some painting projects to be worked on at HQ and many other projects if you don't want to hit the trails.
The list of projects reported earlier in the summer will be updated and reissued early next week.
Hope to see many of you there to get the trails ready for a busy race season at Black Mountain.
On the last day of the 2014-15 Nordic racing season, the Chisholm Ski Club honored Herb Adams with the naming of the Start/Finish line in his honor. Here is the text of the presentation made by our announcer, Craig Zurhorst.
