This is our third trip to Chestnut mountain! So far everyone has loved the addition to this year's trips. If you haven't checked out Chestnut hop on this bus trip!
This trip will have a separate bus from the standard Schaumburg/Rolling Meadows pickup location at the Holiday Inn (1405 Algonquin Rd).
If you don't know about Chestnut it here is a little info from their website: "Our 475-foot vertical drop runs 3,500 feet through nineteen runs ranging from novice to black diamond. Two quad chairs, four triple chairs and three surface lifts take you to the top as fast as you go down. Well, almost as fast.
A Midwest snowboarding haven for boarders and skiers alike, Chestnut Mountain Resort's terrain park, the Farside, is the largest of its kind in the Midwest. The Farside has more than 25 rails and features and is served by its own triple chair lift. And if you don't know what that means, you should probably check it out for yourself."
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. There will be another bus departing the Holiday Inn (1405 Algonquin Rd) at 6:45am. 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!! :)
