NENSA U16 Championships

March 11-13, 2016

Pine Hill, Bethel ME

2016-u16The 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.

herb-adamsOn 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.

Black Mountain, Sugarloaf, and Titcomb Mountain to Host 2014 Championships

The Mountain Valley Conference and Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference combined to hold their individual league skiing championships. One change this year was that the Nordic and Alpine races were each be held on separate weeks, similar to what the Maine Principals Association adopted for this year's state championships.

Black Mountain of Maine is alive and well!! We have made the transition from being owned by Maine Winter Sports to being our own Board of Directors owned and operated Black Mountain of Maine. Through fund raising efforts we have increased our snow making capacities and worked on other improvements on the hill to ensure an outstanding surface to race on.

Thank you Volunteers
