*** UPDATE 12/11/19: We are making continued progress on preparing the chairlift for the opening of the hill for the season. The major issues have all been fixed. Our final step is to complete a few final maintenance projects that we couldn’t do when the lift wasn’t moving. Unfortunately, we will not be able to open the weekend of 12/14. Please accept our apologies and know that we are doing everything we can to open as soon as we can! END UPDATE***
Unfortunately, we have to delay the opening of our ski and snowboard hill, which was originally scheduled for this Saturday, December 7th.
While Mother Nature sure has been cooperating, our issues are mechanical. We are working hard to repair a few chairlift issues that are preventing the lift from operating. And as a one chairlift hill, we don’t have other options!
We do not have a timeline for our new opening day; it will all depend our getting our chairlift fully functional again and then having its annual inspection. We will send updates through our email list and social media, as well as posting here, as we have them.
In the meantime, please accept our apologies. We are devastated to be missing out on this time on the hill! For brand new families that have not ever skied, we recommend you wait to start until our lessons over winter break (December 26-30). For other families, this may be a great time to use some of the perks with other ski areas that come with your Chester Bowl season passes.

We hope you join us for the 37th summer of free live music at Chester Bowl! The season kicks off on June 11th, and continues each Tuesday through August 13th (with a rain date on 8/20 if needed). Shows start at 7pm for June and July, with earlier start times in August due to the earlier sunsets. With Chester Bowl Park as a beautiful backdrop for the stage, a playground just behind the grassy seating area, an alcohol, smoke, and drug-free environment, and a food truck from 8th Street Ice Cream, this is the best concert venue for families in town! Please see the poster below for the lineup, or visit this link for a larger version. This summer has a little bit of everything- Rock, Country, Americana, Pop, Celtic, Reggae, and more!
