Chester Bowl is open daily, 11:00am-4:30pm, during February Break Week, 2/17-2/21. Spend your break with us! Please note that we are NOT open during evening hours that week, and that we ARE open on Tuesday and Wednesday, even though those are days we are usually closed.
Chester Bowl partners with the City of Duluth Parks and Recreation Department to present the Chester Creek Concert Series- ten weeks of free live music in the park! Concerts are on Tuesdays starting June 9th, and feature a diverse lineup of musical styles and genres. Applications are being accepted through 4pm on Monday, February 20th for bands to be considered. Selected musicians do receive a stipend. Bands can apply at this link. If you have a favorite band that you would like to see on stage, please encourage them to apply!
Chester Bowl is open during Day Hours only (11am-4:30pm) on Friday, January 17th and Monday, January 20th (Martin Luther King, Jr. Day). Duluth Public Schools are out of session those days, so Chester Bowl is open during the day! We hope you spend your long weekend with us.
Chester Bowl is open on New Year’s Day from 11am-4:30pm. Start your year with us on the slopes!
Chester Bowl opens for the season on Saturday, December 21st, at 11 am!
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
Christmas Eve and Christmas Day- closed
Thursday 12/26-Monday 12/30, 11am-4:30pm, with lessons throughout the day (see the schedule at https://www.chesterbowl.org/lessons-and-ski-and-snowboard-camp/)

New Year’s Day, 11am-4:30pm

If you have not yet purchased your season pass, you can do so any day that we are open, starting 30 minutes before opening. Please note that we do need signatures from all participants; we have paper copies here at the Chalet, but you can also download and print the paperwork in advance at https://www.chesterbowl.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/2019_2020-Winter-Registration-Packet.pdf. Each person needs a photo to be laminated in their pass (small school photo size is perfect) and payment is by check or cash.
We can’t wait to see you out on the hill!
