Chester Bowl provides a family friendly, positive environment with affordable prices, and is a hill right in town with surprising variations and challenges. Our Opening Day is scheduled for Saturday, December 8th (weather permitting), and our projected closing date is Sunday, March 17th.

In general, we are open Saturdays and Sundays, 11-4:30; Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays, 4:30-8:30pm, and are closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Hours may vary on Holidays or on weekdays when Duluth Public Schools are not in session.
Day passes are just $10 for youth, $15 for adults 19and up- the cheapest in the country! Chester Bowl does NOT have daily equipment rentals.
Most families utilize our season gear rentals and season passes. Rentals stay with the family and can be used at other ski areas. The program is described at this link. We had our equipment lottery nights on 10/22 and 10/23. As of 10/24 we have a waitlist for snowboards and open November fitting spots for skis. After reading the info at the prior link, you can call us at 724-9832 to choose a fitting time. Do you know our program and are looking to jump to the paperwork? Jump straight here.
