The Maine Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame Selection Committee has named seven individuals to be inducted into the Maine Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame at the 20th annual Maine Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame celebration scheduled for Nov. 5 at Sugarloaf.

The Maine Ski Hall of Fame is a program of the museum that recognizes individuals who bring distinction to Maine through competition, either as athletes or coaches and those who pioneered the sport in Maine — ski makers, ski area builders, instructors, volunteers; and others who have made a significant contribution to the sport, according to a news release from the museum based in Carrabassett Valley.

The Class of 2022 includes:

Scott Broomhall of Rumford carried on the family tradition becoming a highly ranked high school and later college cross country racer. He went on to earn a spot coaching with the US Ski Team. He also worked with the course crew for the Olympic Winter Games.

Russell Currier of Stockholm, an Aroostook County native and proud son of Stockholm, established himself as one of the top biathletes in the world during his 16-year biathlon career on the US National Biathlon Team, including five World Championships and two Olympics.

Meredith Elcome of South Portland, using her background in physical therapy, assisted in the development of Maine Adaptive Sports and Recreation, formerly Maine Handicapped Skiing, which is now the largest year-round adaptive recreation program in the state. Her commitment to the sport has paved the way for adaptive skiing to be accessible to all Mainers with disabilities.


Robert “Bud” Fisher of Brooksville started out as a student jumper at Williams College, 1977-81. Turning his love and skills of ski jumping to coaching, he spent 42 years at the top levels of his sport.

Peter Howard of Hulls Cove decades-long involvement with the Professional Ski Instructors of America, through instruction, management, and writing, has been instrumental to the organization’s growth and innovation. He inspires ski instructors both at his home mountain, Sugarloaf, and nationally, to push themselves to be better skiers.

Roxanne Nash-Marks of Peaks Island coached both boys and girls with success with Mt Abram teams winning nine state championships. Mount Abram had never won a title at that time and in the following 36 years has only won three.

Jim Quimby of Dallas Plantation has been involved in the development of Saddleback since his grandfather and father helped install the first lift in 1960 and it has been in his blood ever since. After filling many roles through the years he was named general manager in June of this proud, independent ski area.
