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.

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!
