The Chisholm Ski Club, Black Mountain of Maine and NENSA successfully hosted the 2023 Maine Event Cross Country Cross (XCX), despite unfavorable weather conditions. Undaunted by cool temperatures and a persistant drizzle, 52 competitors braved the conditions for a fun-filled roller skiing event consisting of hills, ramps, and a slalom course. The skiers especially enjoyed the three levels of the Black Mountain parking lot.

Tom Kendall and his family were long time members of the Chisholm Ski Club. Tom started timing both cross country and alpine races many years ago. It was a family business right from the get-go, with his wife Nancy, and brothers and sisters helping at many events. In 2002, Tom served as the chief of timing at the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics, and he and his crews also timed the NCAA events and championships for many years. Well known around the country, Tom's timing company still lives on today as Bart Timing.

chisholm logo 72hTo make sure that we can provide a safe, inclusive and valuable FUN experience for all involved, the Youth Development Program's start has been delayed.
COVID-19 cases are at an all time record high for the state of Maine and pool testing in schools and rapid testing at home and at local pharmacies have many barriers at this time, including accessibility and availability and the timing of turn around results.  Because of this, and really frigid temperatures which have frozen the available natural snow we have in the stadium…
We are postponing the start to our program until Sunday, January 23rd at noon for fitting of equipment with actual skiing to follow.
Also, the weather suggests we may get a great natural snowstorm (like the type to stay home and make a snowman or ski!) on Monday, Martin Luther King Day.  Please remember the birth of this great African American Leader and his work, and may we all take space to consider the work we all can for racial equality.  
The following weekend could provide great conditions as the snow can be groomed and tracked and safe for littles, no one wants to ruin a great day of skiing with icy conditions and falls, or cold fingers and toes!
We hope to see you all on the 23rd for fun on SNOW and in an outdoor COVID-19 friendly atmosphere.
Please remember to follow all CDC guidelines, and if you’re sick stay home, and if you are indoors in Muriel’s Kitchen (where the bathroom is) race headquarters or in our new awesome building, please wear a mask, for the safety of our friends and family, but mostly for the generation of CSC members who are volunteering.  
We want to ski soon! Let’s make this happen!
