Our 2015-16 Chester Bowl Ski Program Information Night and Lottery is Tuesday, October 20th, 2015, from 6:00- approximately 7:30pm at the Ordean-East Middle School Cafeteria, 2900 E. 4th St. Please park in the lower lot right next to the cafeteria. We recognize that parking is limited, and we can’t control what other activities are happening at the school, so please plan to arrive early to secure parking.
This event is designed to explain how our winter program works and then assign nights for families to come to Chester Bowl to be fitted for rental skis. We do not currently have snowboard equipment for rent. No passes will be made or skis fitted on this night, so you are only required to attend if you intend to rent skis for the year. Full details on our entire winter program are found here.
At the event, the alpine program will briefly be explained, including information on free ski lessons, holiday ski camp, teen ski cadets, freestyle cadets & scholarships. We will go over how the Chester Bowl Improvement Club (CBIC) functions, including required volunteer hours. A lottery will then assign each family a date in November (Tuesdays-Thursdays, 11/3-11/19) to go to Chester Bowl & be fitted for rental skis, boots, poles & helmets. Parents will also be able to sign up for volunteer opportunities, including the Saturday, October 24, clean the ski hill morning.
Please bring your calendar. No payments will be made until families come to Chester Bowl in November to be fitted for skis.
Most people are able to get their rental equipment reservations and leave in about an hour. However, the last names that get drawn have had to wait sometimes as long as 90 minutes (from the very beginning time of the program) In the interest of being “fair,” once the drawing starts, there will be no late names added. Parents can enter the lottery for their own family, and not for friends, neighbors or relatives. ONLY ONE ADULT NEEDS TO COME TO THE LOTTERY; the entire family does NOT need to attend. The event can get quite long for children.
If you miss the ski lottery, there is still a chance your family can get ski equipment for the upcoming season. The CBIC will continue to rent out skis on a limited basis. However, it is in your best interest to attend the lottery.
Please contact Sam at 724-9832 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to sign up to volunteer at the ski lottery. These volunteer hours will count toward the 2015-16 season requirements.
Please contact us if you have any questions.
