Chisholm Ski Club Youth Cross-Country Ski Program
This winter, 6-10 year olds throughout the River Valley will enjoy cross-country ski lessons at Black Mountain Ski Resort. The Chisholm Ski Club Youth Cross-Country Program is in collaboration with the L.L. Bean Healthy Hometowns managed by the Maine Winter Sports Center.
The planning committee for this program included local skiers, including members of the Chisholm Ski Club, Maine Winter Sports Center (MWSC), and Black Mountain Ski Resort. The program features fun, activity-based lessons throughout January and February.
Since its inception in 1999, MWSC has been dedicated to creating a healthier, more active, outdoor lifestyle throughout Maine. Healthy Hometowns, the community development division of MWSC, meets this challenge by providing resources such as equipment, curriculum, and training to volunteers and professionals across the state. Internationally recognized as one of the top youth development programs in the world, Healthy Hometowns seeks to build the active, outdoor culture of Maine with an emphasis on accessibility, sustainability, and quality along with fun.
