Chester Bowl opening Dec. 20, 4:30 p.m.

Originally scheduled to open this Saturday, Dec. 15, the ski hill will now open Dec. 20 at 4:30 p.m.. The snow makers lost eight days due to the warm weather the last couple weeks.

Thanks to Thom Storm, the CBIC, the City of Duluth and all the parents/volunteers that keep Chester Bowl going. I learned to ski there thanks to the equipment loaner program. Without that, my family never would have been able to afford gear. The family pass was beyond reasonable and the hot dog, glass of pop and bag of chips I earned each time I worked as a "ski patrol" made for a memorable meal. Things are different now - the ski jumps are silent, the tow rope is gone and kids wear helmets while skiing. But the opportunity to learn to ski/race afforded by a little ski hill in the middle of Duluth is something that has endured. Bravo!

Actually, I'm pretty sure it's 4:30.

If that's the case, blame the source. [img]http://www.perfectduluthday.com/wp-content/uploads/comments/city-release-chester.jpg[/img]

The city has reissued the news release specifying 4:30, so 4:30 it is. Brian, you sir have righted a wrong.

I was going to say, if Don did show up early with his big ribbon-cutting scissors and needed something to do, there might be more XC trails to clear. Just kidding. Just kidding. I wouldn't actually say that.
