2021/2022 Lesson Signups

This season, Chester Bowl is offering 45-minute, small group, ski or snowboard lessons for all Chester Bowl season pass or day ticket holders. Chester Bowl does not offer daily equipment rental. Lesson participants either have to have their own gear or have rented equipment from Chester for the season. For more info about renting equipment, follow this link: https://www.chesterbowl.org/ski-and-snowboard-season-rental-program/

Preregistration is required for lessons.

About Lessons

We have lessons split into the following “levels” based on ability level.

  • Level 1- brand new to skiing or snowboarding (using the bunny hill, not the chairlift).
    • These lessons focus on the very basics of skiing and snowboarding.
    • Once skiers or snowboarders “pass” level 1 lessons, they can join a level 2 lesson. Passing usually involves what we call the “cone test” where skiers are required to stay in a “pizza” while weaving between cones and then come to a complete stop at the bottom of the hill.
      • Once they pass the “cone test” we will send the kiddo up the chairlift with an instructor or Cadet.
  • Level 2- Have passed Level 1 lessons and are able to ride the chairlift. Lesson participants will spend time learning how to use the chairlift appropriately, increase their skiing/boarding skills, and explore the hill.
    • After a few Level 2 lessons, most skiers/snowboarders are able to use the hill independently outside of lessons. This depends on the individual’s maturity level and ability. If you are unsure about this you may talk to the instructor after a Level 2 lesson or come talk to Sam.
    • It is not a bad idea to sign your kids up for a Level 2 lesson at the beginning of the season if they were using the hill independently last winter. Our instructors can provide a review of how to use the lift and basic ski/board skills.
  • Level 3- Working on advanced skiing and snowboarding or freestyle skills. December 26-30 we will not be offering Level 3 lessons and are asking adults to not sign up.
    • It is important to get young skiers and snowboarders repetition that we can only offer during the holiday ski & snowboard lesson week. Adults tend to remember details and are more capable of practicing outside of lessons.  Adults can sign up for Level 1-3 lessons starting January 8, 2021.

Parents or older siblings of Level 1 skiers and snowboarders (brand new to the sport) are encouraged to be on hand during lessons. Parents will be helping to push their skier up the hill, getting their skier into the perfect skier stance, or catching their skier at the bottom of the hill. It has been our experience that parent involvement will help the lesson go smoother and will help your kiddos learn to ski or board much quicker. 

Signing Up

We will release the signups one week in advance of lessons. We are asking that parents sign up for up to 3 lessons at a time during the Holiday Ski & Snowboard Camp and during weekend lessons. This limit of 3 lessons for each participant will help to keep space available for those looking to get signed up for lessons. The other reason is because often times kids will pass a Level 1 lesson and no longer need that level of instruction. If you signed your kiddo up for a ton of Level 1 lessons and they only use a few, you will need us to cancel for you (this is a pain) and others would not be able to get signed up and would miss out an receiving instruction.

COVID-19 Program Adaptations

Although COVID-19 restrictions have been loosened we are requiring all staff, volunteers, and lesson participants to be masked when they are not able to maintain social distancing. This applies to when lesson participants are riding the chairlift during lessons. This applies to all lesson participants including young children. If they can ski or snowboard, they can wear a mask. If this is an issue please do not sign up for lessons.

The Day of Your Lesson:

  • Please arrive 5-10 minutes early to allow time for this check-in procedure. 
  • Please arrive with your ski boots on or put them on in your car. The chalet will be closed to the public and only outdoor space is available.
  • Check in for your lesson by lining up near the bottom of the hill where the “Lesson Check In” sign is at. There will be an instructor with a clipboard checking lesson participants in.
  • After a Level 1 lesson you can help your skier or snowboarder off the bunny hill. The bunny hill will be closed to non-lesson participants on days that we have lessons. We will open it on days that lessons are not scheduled for families to practice. 
  • After a Level 2 lesson you can retrieve your children from the bottom of the hill and get an update from our instructors on their progress.
  • If your kiddo did well in the Level 2 lessons then they are more than welcome to keep skiing or snowboarding on the big hill.

If you have any questions about lessons and how to signup, please email [email protected].
