Announcing a new Meetup for Chicago Ski and Snowboard!What
: December 29th - Chestnut Mountain Mid-Week Bus TripWhen
: Wednesday, December 29,[masked]:00 AMWhere
: Chestnut Mountain
8700 West Chestnut Road
Galena, IL 61036
Mid-week trip for those of you that have the week between holiday's off! A bus will be running to Chestnut to enjoy their 475-foot vertical drop which runs 3,500 feet through nineteen runs ranging from novice to black diamond.
This is one of my favorite resorts so why not make the trip mid-week?
As usual the charter bus will depart the intersection of Clark and Division at 6:00am and the corner of Fullerton and Sheffield at 6:30am. Depending on the travel conditions we should be in the parking lot at Chestnut by 9:30am. We will distribute lift tickets as you exit the bus so no waiting in line! You can literally hop right off the bus and on to the lifts! If you have your own gear you can bring it along and if you need gear there are rentals available. We can also arrange 60-90 minute lessons for $10! People wanting to meet up there should catch us in the bus lot for your lift tickets, if you don't have them. The bus will leave the mountain at 5:30pm so you get almost 8 hours of skiing/riding...trust me, you will be tired!! We will play movies on the way home while you enjoy hot chocolate, cookies, soda and water. Nothing like kicking back on the way home trading stories from the slopes or napping with no worries about driving! Feel free to bring a small cooler if you would like. We will be back in the city between 8:30 and 9:00 pm and will drop off at the same locations we picked up from. These trips are great for meeting people to ski/ride with so don't be afraid to come alone! We are all very friendly!! :)
Don't miss out on the first ever Chestnut Mountain Trip for the group!!
