Skis, Suds, & Slices- babysitting now provided!

Breaking news: we heard from many of you that you wanted to attend our annual fundraiser, but did not have child care for Friday night. So we now are providing babysitting on site!

Skis, Suds, & Slices is our annual fundraiser to raise money for our scholarship program- we awarded families $12,000 in financial support last winter to enable anyone to participate in our program regardless of income.

In addition to supporting a good cause, those attending will sample local pizzas (and vote for “Twin Ports Best Pizza” with a new travelling trophy) and try out the best wine and beer the area has to offer. There are over 100 items for you to bid on! The event is this Friday, November 13th, 6-9pm, at the Fitgers Building. Tickets are $35 in advance on our web site, at Fitgers Wine Cellar, or at the Chester Bowl Ski Fittings, or you can pay $40 at the door.

How does babysitting work?

The event is in the 3rd Floor Ballroom of the Fitgers building. We will have babysitters provided for a movie night for children ages 4+ in the theater room next door. We plan on having movies showing (to be determined, but appropriate for the youngest), and popcorn and water provided. Pizza or other dinner options are NOT provided, so please send your child with a full belly and any additional snacks they may want. Parents will be contacted to

take their children to the restroom, so please bring your cell phone if you have one. The only charge is requested tips for the babysitters. Pre-registration is not required. Babysitters are youth 12+ with an adult monitor. Do you have an older child that wants to join the babysitting team? Call us at 724-9832.

Find out more about the event here, and we will see you on Friday!

Ski Fittings beginning November 3, 2015

Our ski fittings and season pass sales start November 3, 2015.

If you were looking to rent gear for the season and have not yet signed up for a fitting time, please call the chalet ASAP at 724-9832 to sign up for a time. We have very limited times remaining on Wednesday, November 25th. After these slots fill, we will start a waiting list, and reassess what gear remains after Thanksgiving.

If you are looking to get a season pass, but NOT rent gear, you can come on any of our ski lottery nights (Tuesday through Thursdays, 4:30-8:30pm, Nov 3- Nov 25). Please bring the material outlined below for passes. For season passes only, you do not need to bring all passholders with you IF you have already had each participant sign the required paperwork and bring the paperwork with you.

When coming for ski fittings, you have the option of printing the paperwork in advance and filling it in at home.

This can save you time here on your fitting night, but we will have paper copies available each night. You can find the paperwork by clicking here. Please be sure to bring a picture of each person receiving a pass (face should be about 1 inch by 1 inch), a check or cash to pay for your equipment and passes, and everyone who is getting equipment. We CAN NOT provide gear for someone who is not here. Please be sure to come on the day and time that was assigned to you at the ski lottery.

You will also need to sign up for volunteer hours to meet your commitment, most likely in concessions. Please bring your calendar so you can sign up, or you can sign up in advance by clicking here to get to SignUpGenius.



Ski Hill Cleanup 10/24/15 is on!

The hill cleanup scheduled for today, Saturday 10/24, is on!  We are scheduled from 9-12.  The rain has passed, and it should be a good day to work outside.  Please bring work gloves and any tools you have for clearing and removing brush, weeds, and branches.

Ski Lottery October 20th, 2015

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 sam@chesterbowl.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.

Thank you!

Fall Adventure Program

For the first time ever, we are offering a Fall Adventure Program over MEA break!

This two day camp will run Thursday and Friday, October 15th and 16th, from 9:00 (8:30 earliest dropoff) to 5:00 each day.

Each day at camp we will spend nearly the entire day outside, taking advantage of the beautiful park and trails. Daily activities may include nature exploration and hikes, group games like gaga, dodgeball, and capture the flag, arts and crafts, fort building, and playground time.  We emphasize our philosophy of “Peace in the Parks” in our everyday interactions and activities.  Our goal is to return your camper each day tired, dirty, and happy.  Campers can be from Kindergarteners through 13 years old.

The cost is $50 per child for both days, and registration is open until filled.  Scholarships may be available upon request.

Full information and registrations forms can be found here.
