Maine College Nordic Ski Teams will be competing in a 10k freestyle to determine the winner of the 14th Annual Chummy Broomhall Cup.

The event, awarded to the top Maine Collegiate Nordic team based on the men's and women's results of the day, is named in honor of Rumford native, 10th Mountain Division veteran, two-time Olympian and the figurehead of the Chisholm Ski Club, (one of the nations oldest and most active ski clubs), Wendall "Chummy" Broomhall. 

The event is a mass start, and the women will begin the competition at 10:00, The men will leave the stadium at 11:00. Chisholm Ski Club and Black Mountan hosted the first Chummy Cup competition in 2007.

The Maine Principal Association's Ski Committee has received a great deal of feedback regarding the ski helmet requirements that were in effect in the 2018-2019 ski season.

FIS labelFollowing a recommendation from the Coaches’ Association, the Ski Bulletin and Alpine Rule Book will be adjusted to the FIS rule in place for GS, but allow for the use of "slalom helmets" as is under current FIS and USSA rules. “Helmets designed and manufactured for the partic- ular event of ski racing being contested are required for all competitors and fore- runners in all USSA events and official training. Helmets must bear a CE mark and conform to recognized and appropri- ate standards such as CEH.Din 1077, ASTM F2040, SNELL S98 or RS 98. The CE mark (see below) shall be affixed in a non-removable way on the back of the helmet in a visible location not cov- ered by the goggle strap.

Helmets must cover the head and ears. Helmets with spoilers or edges that stick out are not per- mitted. Protective fea- tures integral to the event being contested, such as chin guards on SL helmets are per permitted. Soft ear protection is only permitted for helmets used in SL.”

With all eyes this week focused this week on this year's MPA state championships, it's important to note that the competitive ski season will continue. On Satureday, February 20th, top high school skiers from around the state will gather at Black Mountain to compete for a chance to represent Maine at the Eastern High School Championships.
