Winter Ski and Snowboard Program

Chester Bowl provides a family friendly, positive environment with affordable prices, and is a hill right in town that has surprising variations and challenges.We are projected to open the Chester Bowl Alpine Ski and Snowboard program on December 12th, 2015, snow conditions permitting.

We offer season passes, season ski rentals, and day passes at Chester Bowl.

Click here to download a PDF with information about our winter ski and snowboard program, including rates for the year and important upcoming dates.
We kicked off the season with our Ski Lottery and Information night at 6pm on Tuesday, October 20th at Ordean East Middle School.  Thank you to the record crowd that joined us!    Click here for information on the Ski Lottery.  We scheduled ski fittings for those renting gear between November 3rd and November 25th.  If you were not able to attend the lottery, and are hoping to rent gear from us for the season, please contact us immediately to schedule your ski fitting time.  Because of the unprecedented demand this year, it is possible that we will not have enough equipment for everyone that is hoping to participate.

The next step for the season, for those renting gear, is the ski fitting nights.  Please come to Chester Bowl at the time and day that was assigned for your family.  Again, if you were not at the ski lottery, please contact us ASAP to talk about renting gear.  Please see this link for the paperwork required for registration.  When you arrive, you will follow the checklist on the first page of the document.  Please read through this to make sure you have everything you need!  We will have paper copies available to fill out at the ski fittings, but you may also print them at home and fill them out in advance to save time at the Chalet.  Please do not fill out the grey sections of the first form in advance (including weight- we need to measure you with your boots on!).

If you are looking to get only a season pass, and are not renting gear, you can come to Chester Bowl during any of the ski fitting nights.  You do NOT need to bring your entire family along to get only a season pass IF they have all signed the appropriate paperwork (including peace in the parks and waivers) in advance.

Our program simply could not happen without the volunteer efforts of our families.  Depending on family size and if you rent gear, each family will be responsible for volunteering for 6 or 12 hours during the season.  Volunteer opportunities including helping with snowmaking, at our ski fitting nights, at our November 13 silent auction, or volunteering with the board or a committee.  One of our biggest needs is for volunteers to help with our concessions stand. We need three individuals working each day while we are open.  Signups will be online through the Jooners web portal, and will begin at the ski fitting nights.

Please contact us if you have any questions, and we hope to see you at Chester Bowl!

Chester Bowl Mini-Master Plan Meeting 9/30

Chester Park has been going through a Mini-Master Planning process. This plan outlines the types of changes that could be made in the park without going through the full future public approval process.  The final meeting is Tuesday, 9/30, at 6pm at Myers-Wilkins Elementary School (1027 N 8th Ave E).  You can come in person or make comments online.  Please participate in this process so that your voice is heard!  Full details on the plan and the process are at
A letter from Parks and Recreation Manager Kathleen Bergen is below:
September 22, 2014

Dear Neighbor of Chester Park,

You are invited to attend a public meeting to review and comment on the final draft of the Mini-Master Plan for Chester Park before it goes to the Parks Commission and City Council.  The proposed Plan, developed by SAS + Associates in coordination with City staff, the Chester Bowl Improvement Club, stakeholder group representatives, and the public, will be presented during the meeting, followed by a question and answer session.

This meeting will be on Tuesday, September 30, 2014 from 6 to 7:30 pm at the Myers- Wilkins Elementary School Media Center. The address is 1027 N 8th Ave E, Duluth, MN 55805.

In addition to sending this letter to Chester Park neighbors, we are issuing our standard press release to invite the general public to attend. We want to hear your comments and feedback. The draft Plan is available for review at the Parks and Recreation website:

If you are unable to attend the public meeting or would prefer to send written comments, the comment form on our website will be available through Friday, October 3, 2014.

Other Important Dates: After revising the draft Plan based on comments shared online and at the final public meeting on September 30, our goal is to present the Chester Park Mini-Master Plan to the Parks Commission on Wednesday, October 8 at 5 pm at the Central Hillside Center (12 E 4th St). If the Plan is approved at that meeting, the final step will be to present the Plan to the City Council on October 13.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

and Sam Luoma learn their new roles. Thank you Northland Foundation!

Welcome to Sam Luoma!

The Chester Bowl Improvement Club (CBIC) announced Wednesday that Sam Luoma will become the new Program-Operations Manager.

Sam Luoma

Sam will be working alongside current Executive Director, Thom Storm and in-coming Executive Director, David Schaeffer. Thom will be retiring on April 30, 2015, after more than 40 years of service. Sam and Dave were hired prior to Thom’s retirement to allow ample time for the transition in leadership for CBIC. Through an extensive succession planning process, CBIC identified the need for a new leadership structure that includes a part-time Executive Director focused on sustaining the financial health of the organization and strategic planning; and a full-time Program-Operations Manager responsible for management, planning and operational oversight for CBIC programming and park operations. While Chester Bowl is a City of Duluth park, all of the programs at the park are operated by and primarily funded through the non-profit, volunteer-run Chester Bowl Improvement Club. That includes the winter downhill skiing program that serves more than 1,000 youth and adult skiers and snowboarders; the summer youth program that serves 60 children per day; planning and coordinating the Chester Bowl Fall Festival; and other activities at Duluth’s most popular park. Additionally, CBIC provides staff and volunteers to assist the City of Duluth with the Tuesday night summer concert series.

Sam has been involved in programming at Chester Bowl for almost a decade, including serving as a Program Assistant between 2010 and 2014. His various roles have included starting the “Freestyle Fridays” and Snowboard Cadet programs, leading and coordinating snowboard lessons, and serving as a counselor for CBIC’s summer Chester Bowl Adventure Camp. Sam has also been a member of

the CBIC Board of Directors. Sam received his BA in Health Sciences from the College of St. Scholastica. Most recently Sam was employed as a Counselor and Supervisor for Northwood Children’s Services. He is a neighbor of the park and an avid snowboarder.

“I am delighted to have Sam join us as the new Chester Bowl Program Manager,” said Thom Storm. “Sam has a deep love of children and community. He has been part of the Chester Bowl family for nearly 10 years, and brings a wealth of experience & knowledge to the position.”
