Clean Yer Creek on May 4

Chester Bowl is a partner for the 16th Annual Clean Yer Creek event! In addition to Chester Creek, volunteers will be cleaning up Amity, Merritt, Keene, and Miller creeks. You choose which creek you want to go when you register.

We will comb these creeks for abandoned trash, illegal dumping, and debris. Early registered volunteers will receive an event t-shirt. All volunteers will be rewarded with a post clean up party at Bent Paddle Brewing where we will enjoy a complimentary beer and lunch provided by Northern Waters Smokehaus.

Please join us for this fun spring day outside as we work together to improve our local Duluth watersheds.

We hope to see you on May 4th!

Support Growing Up Chester by doing yoga!

Duluth Yoga is hosting a fundraiser class for Chester Bowl and the Growing Up Chester campaign to expand and renovate the Chalet! Your $25 donation to participate in the class will go directly to Growing Up Chester.

This class is on Sunday, March 10th at 3pm, at the Duluth Yoga studio 14 E St. Marie St.

This all-levels class will teach yoga poses and flow through sequences, as well as hold poses to build strength, flexibility, and to encourage release. Your experience in the studio will help you tackle or recover from the slopes. Class will be 1 hour in length and the room will be gently heated.

You can sign up by clicking right here.

Winter registration update

Registration is now open for all families!

If you want to rent skis for the season, find out all of the details and register for your equipment fitting time here:

Our snowboard fittings are filled, and our wait list is long enough that new registrants are very unlikely to have equipment available for them.

Are you looking to just get a season pass? You can come in on any of our equipment fitting nights OR come in once the season starts. Please note that we will NOT be able to make season passes between our last day of fittings (11/28) and our start of the season (tentatively 12/16). If you are planning on using any of our partner discounts before Chester opens for the year, you would need to get your season passes at an equipment fitting night. Full season passes are here:

Chester Bowl has awarded the full allotment of $25,000 in scholarships for the winter season. Unfortunately, we will not be able to award any additional scholarships.

October Scholarship update

We closed registration on October 9th. Our scholarship requests received during registration were over double the amount of the available scholarship funding. If you submitted the registration form and requested a scholarship, you should have received an email from dave@chesterbowl.org with your scholarship award amount. If you did not, please check your junk mail, and then reach out to Dave.

We did award all available funding, so unfortunately, we will not be able to award any future scholarship requests for this winter.

While making the scholarship determinations, we followed the priorities listed at https://www.chesterbowl.org/uncategorized/winter-scholarship-update/, with a focus on awarding scholarships to new families and returning families who completed their volunteer hours last year, as well as the lowest income families.
