Dan Olsen from MPR did a story on Chester Bowl that aired today. Fantastic photos by Derek Montgomery too.
The Chester Bowl Chairlift will be closed today, Saturday, Jan. 25, due to the cold & wind. It is possible the lift will run tomorrow, however, strong winds are predicted. I will send out an email Sunday morning with an update.
With the National Weather Service calling for a high around -10 on Monday, the lift will be closed then too.
Due to another day of below zero temperatures, the Chester Bowl chairlift will be closed today.
With below zero highs forecast for both Tuesday & Thursday, it is likely the lift will also be closed on those days. By Friday, it looks like the temperatures will moderate enough to have the lift open again.
I am in the process of scheduling some make up ski lesson days. I will send out another announcement on that, when plans are finalized.
Thanks for supporting your park!
The Chester Bowl Chairlift will be closed today, and there will be no ski lessons, due to the cold weather. There are several days of cold weather predicted, so the status of the lift will be on a day by day basis. If the winds drop tomorrow, and the sun is out, it is possible the lift will reopen on Monday.
To end on a positive note, congratulations to the dozens of new skiers that have gone from non-skiers, to skiing independently, during our first three days os ski camp!
Check the schedule for upcoming times! Thanks Cadets, parents and hearty skiers!

The CBIC Board of Directors recently had a strategic planning retreat, and one of the things we discussed was how important we feel the “Peace in the Parks” policy has been to our philosophy and programming. Further, the Board decided to make the values implied by “Peace in the Parks” more explicit. At our BOD meeting Oct. 8, we voted unanimously to pass the following inclusiveness policy:
“Chester Bowl Improvement Club (CBIC) is deeply committed to providing a diverse, inclusive and respectful environment in the park and in our programs. CBIC is committed to preventing bullying and harassment in our community and
expect all program participants to sign our Peace in the Parks pledge. For both employment and access to programs and activities, the CBIC will not engage in discrimination against any person because of race, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, age, marital status, disability, or sexual orientation including gender identity.”
