*** COVID Update June 16 ,2022***
The City of Duluth rescinded their recent masking requirements in City buildings. Groups renting the Chalet for a private special event are NOT required to have all participants wear masks, and can make their own choices for their event. Because of the small space and extremely limited ventilation, we do recommend that you consider having everyone at your event wear masks indoors.
The Thom Storm Chalet at Chester Bowl Park is a fantastic location for birthday parties, graduation parties, small weddings, and other group activities.
Our basic rate is $75 for the first hour, and $25 per additional hour. There are additional charges and restrictions for events with alcohol.
The main chalet space seats up to about 50 comfortably, with the most common seating configuration utilizing the three long folding picnic tables (like what you may see in a school cafeteria). Groups of more than 50 can tend to get a bit crowded. The space also includes a small kitchen prep area (fridge, freezer, sink, microwave, and counters, but no stove or oven). The area outside of the chalet will also be reserved for your group, with access to power, water, and picnic tables (seasonally). Please note that our main meeting space is accessible only by stairs- we do not have an elevator. Restrooms are available to your group, and also open to the public.
Are you a non-profit looking for a space for meetings or retreats? Meeting use is only $15 per hour.
Also, we now offer private ski hill rentals! Rates start at $500 for a two hour private rental of the entire hill, with lift operation included! Some restrictions apply, so please contact us to learn more about this unique opportunity.
For information about any of these options, and to check availability, please contact the office at (218) 724-9832.
A permit is required, for all events, and you can download the form here.
