Me and some of my buddies from St. Louis are heading up to Chestnut the 27th and 28th (weather permitting). Does anyone know how likely they are to open on time?? Because I am itching to get on the snow and ill be bummed if they dont open on time... Thanks
Jordan you're a tard. The week before the planned opening date we're supposed to have lows in the upper 20s-low 30s.
Chestnut has one of the best, if not the best, snow making systems in the midwest and they can open up multiple runs in just a few hours of cold. They are going to be pushing extremely hard to make the set opening date. While they most likely won't be entirely open, unless we get hit with a freak warm front they will definately have a few runs open and at least one will have some kind of park features.
I hope It'll be open. 2 hr drive for me and friends haha. Hopefully their be park open.
My Day Of Ski,
Wake up at 7:30. Eat Breakfast and watch the weather channel. Take a shower quick one. Brush my teeth. Put my ski gear. Haul my boots and skis and poles in the car. Stop at gas station to get gas and cup of coffee. Get to Snowstar about 9:30. Stomp your boots and get your skis. Walk to the snow. Click your skis and get warmed up. Hit rails and ramps all day. Lunch between in that. Night about 11:00. Head home. Get home. Clean my skis and boots. Then Get ready for bed. Thats my day of skiing.
