For over forty years Black Mountain of Maine has been acknowledged as one of the ﬁnest Nordic Skiing facilities for recreation and competition in North America. Black Mountain's trails were developed by Rumford's Chummy Broomhall, a two-time Olympian, designer of the Lake Placid and Squaw Valley Olympic cross-county trails and Nordic snow groomer pioneer. Black Mountain of Maine has hosted many of today's US Olympic Team skiers as the site of the 2003 and 2004 Chevrolet US Cross Country Championships, as well as the US Cross Country Championships in 2011. Trails are groomed, whenever possible, for both skating and classic techniques. During competitions, the spectator bridge at the lodge provides a great vantage point to view, cheer, and take photos. Black Mountain of Maine's 17 kilometers of trails, with snowmaking on 4 kilometers, have something to offer for all abilities. The cross-country trails are also open to snowshoeing.
For those who don't ski or snowboard, The Edge Tubing Park provides a great way to experience the thrill of speed on the snow and is a hot spot for outdoor winter fun. A 300-foot handle tow transports you and your tube (provided) up the hill to your choice of chutes. When you visit The Edge Tubing Park there is no need for special equipment, just warm clothes and a little courage. Please note that all tubers must be able to clear the end of the chute, unassisted, after a ride.
