Chester Bowl is a beautiful 117 acre park in Duluth, MN. In the winter the alpine hill, with a double chair lift and 175 feet of drop, handles up to 960 skiers and snowboarders per hour. The park also features 3 km of unlighted intermediate cross-country ski trails with a mix of woods, glade and a scenic overlook of the city and lake. During the summer the park features the Summer Adventure Program and the Chester Creek Concert Series. On the third Saturday of September up to 10,000 people join us for our one day Fall Fest. The park also features beautiful hiking trails, fishing and soccer fields.
The Chester Bowl Improvement Club (CBIC) is a not-for-profit organization whose purpose is to facilitate and promote sustainable, quality programs for all Chester Bowl Park users in a healthy and safe environment. The CBIC is perhaps best known for its youth downhill ski program, but also provides year round programs and events for young and old alike. CBIC further provides management for the park, operates the ski lift, and contributes to park facilities such as the new playground equipment.
These wonderful experiences at Chester Bowl would not be possible without the dedicated efforts of many volunteers. Commitment to our park environment and to our youth is shared by CBIC members and many friends from the community who commit their time and abilities to provide these opportunities for everyone. If you or your family enjoys Chester Bowl and you would like to help ensure it remains a treasured center of the community, please contact us to learn about opportunities to volunteer.
