CMSC Earns Boys Title at Non-conference Championships

The first annual Non-Conference Championship race was held at Quarry Road on Saturday. It was a 5k mass start classic on a very snowy course. Caleb Niles of Deering won the boys race and Izzy Chase of Gould Academy won the girls race. Central Maine Ski Club took the boys team title and Gould Academy won the girls team title. We look forward to putting this race on again next year!

Led by Connor Dolan and Gwinna Remillard, the CMSC High School team performed well at a meet hosted by Monmouth High School on our home course Quarry Road Trails on Tuesday.

The high school team, despite its relatively small number of skiers, and lack of local school sponsorship continues to race well on the Maine circuit.

Ski Club is On Today

The usual protocol is to follow school cancellations for the youth program. Today however, as road conditions are improving rapidly and temperatures are warming into the afternoon, we will have the youth program practice as planned. If anyone feels that it is unsafe for them to get to quarry road and will miss this practice, we understand completely!

Youth Ski Club Starts Wednesday!

Hello All,Our first day of the Youth Program will be Wednesday Jan 4th. We will start officially at 3:30 but it is best to arrive early to get boots and skis figured out and to meet coaches etc. The first day will be a fun learning atmosphere (with parents welcome) where we will seek to place your children in the coaching group that fits best with their progress and current abilities. We look forward to seeing you all soon!
