Welcome Sam Gravelle!

We are delighted to welcome Sam Gravelle to Chester Bowl as our new Program Assistant! This new full-time role expands our year-round team from two people to three. Sam G will be supporting all programming at Chester, including being the site coordinator for summer camp at the Lower Chester site, and supporting the daily operations of the ski and snowboard hill.

Sam G worked with us this last winter as a lift operator, snowboard instructor, and terrain park coordinator. He graduated from the University of Minnesota Duluth with a degree in Environmental and Outdoor Education, and has previous experience as an Adventure Guide and a Recreation Manager in Northern Minnesota and in California. Sam’s hobbies include mountain biking, snowboarding, and fly fishing.

We are most impressed by his positive attitude, ability to connect to our users of all ages, and his work ethic.

Welcome to the full time team, Sam! Next time you see him in the park, be sure to give him a welcome and a high-five.
