Chester Bowl is a beautiful 117 acre park in Duluth, MN. In the winter the alpine hill, with a double chair lift and 175 feet of drop, handles up to 960 skiers per hour. The park also features ice skating, as well as 3 km of unlighted intermediate cross-country ski trails with a mix of woods, glade and a scenic overlook of the city and lake. During the summer the park has exciting youth programs and concerts. It also features beautiful hiking trails, fishing and soccer fields.
The Chester Bowl Improvement Club (CBIC) is a not-for-profit organization whose purpose is to facilitate and promote sustainable, quality programs for all Chester Bowl Park users in a healthy and safe environment. The CBIC is perhaps best known for its youth downhill ski program, but also provides year round programs and events for young and old alike. CBIC further provides management for the park, operates the ski lift, and contributes to park facilities such as the new playground equipment.
