Chester Bowl’s Winter 2017/2018 Ski and Snowboard Season is now closed for the year! Thank you for a great season- we are already looking forward to next year.
Be sure to join us on Sunday, March 25th for our end of season potluck and awards (5pm, Eastridge Church, 3727 W Arrowhead Road). Ski and snowboard returns are Tuesday 4/10, Wednesday 4/11, and Thursday, 4/12, 5:30-8:30pm each night.
The Lottery registration period for our summer camp is now closed. Those who have submitted their registration forms during the lottery period will hear back from us regarding their enrollment by 3/23 at the very latest. We do expect to fill camp completely through the lottery. If there is still room in the program, registration forms received after the lottery will be processed in the order that they are received.
Full camp information is found at this link.
Chester Bowl is opening for the season on Saturday, December 16th. We are open Saturday and Sunday from 11-4:30, and Monday night from 4:30-8:30pm. We hope you join us!
Volunteers and staff in the pictures below are preparing for the big day, and snowmaking has been very successful (with a little natural stuff helping out too!). Expect great conditions!
The slopes are looking better every hour. With a bit of luck and some cold weather, skiing should be happening before you know it at Chester Bowl!
The Minnesota Ski Areas Association (MSA) wants to give Minnesota kids a chance to get out, have fun and get healthy this winter by hitting the Minnesota Slopes!
MSA has created a statewide program that provides every 4th grader the opportunity to ski for free. Your passport includes a minimum of two visits to each resort. For Chester Bowl, passholders receive unlimited free day passes with their MSA Passport. Please note that we do not offer day rentals of skis or snowboards, and anyone purchasing our season-long rentals must have a regular season pass.
MSA charges $19.95 for the passport (to cover printing and shipping). Please see this website for more information and to purchase your passport.
If you attended our Ski and Snowboard Lottery, you should have your snowboard or ski fitting date for your rental scheduled. If you were not able to make it, please call us at the chalet to schedule a time (while spots last). If you are only getting a season pass, not renting gear, you can come on any fitting night (Nov 1, 2, 6, 7, 8, 9, 14, 15, 16, 20, and 21, 5:30-8:30 each evening). Full details are at the Winter Ski and Snowboard tab above, but a quick link to the paperwork packet if you would like to fill it out in advance is at this link. We will have paper copies at the fitting, but some families prefer to save time and work on it in advance.
Fall Adventure Program Registration is now open!
We run a two-day camp on October 19 and 20, the days of MEA Break, for children in Kindergarten and older. Click here for full details and registration information.
