Ski Lessons rescheduled

Due to the cold weather and the cancellation of two days of our ski school, additional ski lessons have been scheduled at Chester Bowl. For the next two Saturdays, Jan. 4 & 11, we will offer lessons at the following times:

11:30-12:30 Adult lessons – for skiers of all abilities
12:30-1:30 Snowboard Lessons
1:30-2:30 Non-skier lessons
3-4 Beginner & Intermediates

Since our first race of the year is Sunday, Jan. 5, Saturdays skiers will practice skiing out of the starting house & going through gates, just like they will do in Sunday’s race. Anyone who can ski down the hill is welcome to race! We have age categories from 5 & under up to age 16.

Early registration for Sunday’s race will be on Sat. from 2:30-3:30 in the ski garage. The one time fee for all six races is $15.00/racer or $25/family. This includes a free lunch for every race, and an award for each event, no matter how a skier places in the standings.
This Sunday’s race is sponsored by Ron Hanger, who will be taking pictures of all racers from approximately 12-1, and providing them with a free photo button.
Sunday’s registration will be from 11-12:30 in the ski garage. There is no late registration. The race starts at 1:15.

Everyone Is A Winner At Chester Bowl!

Thom

Lift Closed again today, Monday Dec 30.

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!

Thom

Lift Closed Sunday 12-29

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!

Ski School Begins!

 Check the schedule for upcoming times!  Thanks Cadets, parents and hearty skiers!
