Canceled Meetup

12/15 One Day Ski Trip to Chestnut Mountain! $89+ $20 ski rental, $10 lesson


Join us on the slopes! We will spend the day skiing & snowboarding at Chestnut Moutain, a beautiful resort in Galena, Il near the Iowa border that is great for beginners and experts alike.

Meet at one of the 3 pickup locations, most of us will be at the Fullerton & Sheffield stop at 6am. You can park in the Depaul lot all day for $14, or find limited free street parking. Or just take the train. If you board the bus at 5:30a at Clark & Division, try to save the group some seats near you. PLEASE TRY TO ARRIVE 30 MIN EARLY, so we can meet & get seats together and not be holding up the bus. We can get coffee & snacks together at the Dominicks next to Depaul until the bus arrives. But eat a good breakfast before you come. Lunch at the resort will not be until around 11:30a.

We will have a comfortable coach bus with reclining seats, a bathroom(but no sink, they may have hand sanitizer or bring your own), and video screens to watch dvd's(bus chooses movies, sorry). The resort is approx 3.5 hours drive. Bring a book or magazine, or just sleep on the way up and back. We arrive around 10a, ski til about 5p, then arrive back in the city by 9p. You can also bring a small cooler or bag of snacks & "adult" beverages to enjoy on the ride home(drinking BEFORE skiing is a BAD idea). The bus will have free hot coffee, bottled water & granola bars.

You can make your payment directly to . Tickets will be on sale soon and may sell out so don't delay! Hope you can make this ski outing, or the one Jan 12. The 40th Annual Black Ski Summit in Aspen/Snowmass is Feb 23- March 3. Get some practice in before that big event!
