Skis, Suds, & Slices

Skis, Suds, & Slices will be back in person at Clyde Iron on Friday, November 10, 2023!

The event features pizza, beer, wine, and cider tastings, a silent auction, a raffle, and more! All money raised will directly support Chester Bowl’s scholarship program.

At Chester Bowl, we believe that every family should be able to learn to ski or snowboard and attend summer camp regardless of their family income. That’s why we offer full or partial scholarships to any family that requests one. Last winter we awarded $42,000 in winter scholarship to over 100 different families, and we awarded over $31,000 in summer camp scholarships this year- that is 775 days of camp!

But we need your help!

With many families continuing to feel the financial impacts of the pandemic, inflation, and this general craziness we call life, we anticipate that scholarship requests will be higher than ever again this winter. Can you help us support our scholarship needs through Skis, Suds, & Slices? There are several ways to help.

Come to the event!: Come to the event and have a fantastic night supporting your community. You will be able to buy $25 tickets online in advance- look for details closer to the event. There will also be child care available.

Silent Auction:  You can bid on silent auction items (is it too early to say you could keep Christmas lists in mind?) either at the event OR from home through our bidding platform- and you do not need to be present to win! The auction is open for bidding from Wednesday, 11/08, through 8:30pm on Friday, 11/10. Don’t be afraid to bid high to make sure that you get what you want! The link will be posted here.

Silent Auction winnings pickup- You can pick up your items at the event or at the equipment fitting nights the next week (11/13-11/16) between 6 and 9pm at the Chalet. Sorry, we do not ship prizes.

Raffle Tickets:  Want to give, but you are also feeling lucky? Buy raffle tickets! Each $10 raffle ticket gives you a chance at incredible prizes. Watch for details here closer to the event, including a list of prizes. Raffle tickets must be purchased with cash or check, and can be purchased at the event or during equipment fitting nights at the Chalet. Fitting times are 5:30-9:00 on 10/25, 10/26, 10/30, 11/1, 11/2, 11/6, 11/7, 11/8, and 11/9. You could also arrange to purchase them from staff at the Chalet, but be sure to call first at 218-724-9832 to make sure we are here! The raffle drawing is at 8:30pm on 11/10 at Clyde Iron during Skis, Suds, & Slices.

Donate:  Finally, you can simply make a donation. All donations are tax-deductible, and every dollar you donate will go directly towards scholarships. You can donate online through our bidding software, which will be linked here prior to the event. You can also send a check to Chester Bowl, 1801 East Skyline Parkway, Duluth MN 55812.

We are so grateful to those businesses and organizations that have already financially supported Skis, Suds, & Slices, including the Provost family in memory of Jeff Provost and LHB!
