Opening Day Saturday December 21!

We want to thank all of you for your patience, support, and understanding as we worked through some issues with our chairlift. The lift is now fully operational and ready to go! We hope you are excited to join us over Holiday Break at Chester. We have great snow cover, the hill is groomed and ready to go, and our staff are ready to welcome you on opening day.

We are so grateful to Mont Du Lac (especially Ian Koivisto) and Spirit Mountain (especially Mark Hoffman) for the many hours that they spent working with us on the lift. It is because of them that all the problems are resolved and we can open tomorrow.

Our hours over the Holiday break are as follows:

Saturday 12/21, 11am-4:30pm

Sunday 12/22, 11am-4:30pm

Monday 12/23, 11am-4:30pm
