Chestnut Mountain

  I learned to ski at Chestnut Mountain, it's really good to go and learn at a local place like this before you go to the Rockies, so you don't waste time on the bunny slope over there. Says Lisa Taylor.

The 4 feet of snow that falls here per winter is relatively okay for a ski resort like this one. This is a normal size ski resort having a vertical drop that's more or less average if compared to other mid west ski resorts. Chestnut Mountain has the
    most sizeable elevation difference for 77 miles. With a 475 foot elevation difference it's not the tallest hill there is, but Chestnut Mountain compensates for it by other means. The 4 lifts here will get you up the mountain efficiently.
This ski resort has 139 acres of skiable area, and it's all in good condition. The skiing and the snowboarding in this region is loads of fun all winter long. This ski area has a much lower than average part of black and red ski trails and a much higher than average fraction of easy slopes. The annual snowfall is lighter than average at this ski area. This ski hill has 17 ski runs, and they are totally fun. Chestnut Mountain is a great ski area for young and old  
with scores of intermediate or beginner ski trails. This ski hill has a humble selection of slopes and a comparatively modest quantity of ski lifts. There are a lot of delightful lodgings to select from, but do reserve a room ahead of going given that it is a very popular destination. Given that you're on this page you are in all probability into skiing or snowboarding, either way, around here, you'll locate many wonderful ski resorts. Plenty of skiers voyage up here from Clinton, specifically on the weekends. When this segment of Illinois is covered in white snow; it is so charming for skiing or snowboarding. The best piece of information on this resort is naturally the trailmap of Chestnut Mountain on this web page.
