Despite the recent heavy rains, the Black Mountain of Maine and the Chisholm Ski Club were able to salvage both the alpine and nordic courses to provide a great day of skiing in the 2018 Chisholm Challenge. In the initial race of the day, Mia Corcoran, skiing for the Chisholm Ski Club's race team, capture the gold in the girls Giant Slalom with times of :27.03 and 27:82 for a :54.85 total. Corcoran's time was just over a second faster than runner-up Madison Papianou (:56.02). Papianou's first run of :26.80 was the fastest run of the day. Coming in third was Katie Yeaton of the Farmington Area Ski Team. Rounding out the top six were Hannah Macmillan of Rangeley, Emily Harper of Maranacook, and Anna Erb, also of Maranacook.
