Free Group Lessons

The Chester Bowl Improvement Club offers FREE group lessons for anyone with a season or day pass. The Holiday Ski & Snowboard Camp is a series of free group lessons running annually from December 26-30.  Our free Saturday group lessons run from January 5- February 16, 2019. There is no registration required. Simply show up ready to ski or snowboard during the appropriate lesson time and date. Parents of new skiers and snowboarders should plan on sticking around to help their children climb the bunny hill and cheer their children on during New Skier & New Snowboarder lessons. 

“New” Skiers and snowboarders are those that are not yet ready to go on the lift. All those just starting should begin in the “new” lessons. Our staff will promote skiers to the beginner level (allow them on the chairlift with an adult or Cadet, and advance to the next level of lessons) when they can repeatedly demonstrate their ability to keep their balance, control their speed, weave back and forth between cones, and stop on their own.  Snowboarders are promoted when they can repeatedly demonstrate their ability to keep their balance, control their speed, and use the “falling leaf” technique across the hill.

Once skiers and snowboarders have passed on to the chairlift, they are also ready to participate in our Freestyle Fridays and our Race Series!
