NENSA Eastern Cup Weekend #2 at Black Mountain


In the recently completed NENSA Eastern Cup Races, hosted by the Chisholm Ski Club and Black Mountain Ski Resort, the River Valley Area once again proved that it could offer a world-class event despite the odds presented by the recent ice storms.

Skiers were competing on the newly improved nordic trails, made possible due to a grant from the Bangor Savings Bank and many volunteer hours over the summer.

Thank you Volunteers
