 Product Description

In the winter of 1917 something new appeared in Rumford, Maine: organized recreational skiing. A small group of friends, calling themselves the Rumford Outing Club, rented a farmhouse at the far edge of town and began skiing, hiking and snowshoeing.That same group of people, later re-organized as the Chisholm Ski Club, produced Maine's greatest, most spectacular winter carnivals, beginning in the 1920s. The Chisholm Ski Club has produced four Olympians and has hosted one World Ski Championship plus numerous important regional and national ski competitions.Black Mountain, which opened for skiing in 1960 under Chisholm Ski Club auspices, remains a wonderful recreational asset for Rumford and dozens of other towns in Western Maine.The Chisholm Ski Club thrives to the present day, headquartered at Black Mountain.This book tells that story.
