I drive the groomer at Chestnut Mountain and I all I can say to all of you people who say that we do not grom is that you obviously have no idea what you are talking about. We grom our slopes every night unless the weather does not allow for it. We can only groom the slopes when the temperatures fall below freezing so you were probally just there during pre or post season when it was to warm to groom.
The staff is extremely enthusiastic and willing to help. There is also a wide variety of terrain including the best learners hill in the area, many intermediate hills, and some of the steepest terrain around. There are moguls, NASTAR race courses on Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays, and an amazing terrain park. There are six lifts, two rope tows, and a magic carpet for the little ones. Lift lines are always short, less than one minute if there even is one, other than on holidays.
The Farside, Chestnut Mountain Resort's terrain park, is the largest of its kind in the Midwest. A triple chairlift that is just for the park takes you to seven acres of quarter pipes, half pipes, jumps and more than 20 types of rails.
The afterlife is great as well there is a game room, pool and hot tub, resturant and bar above the cafeteria, two gift shops, and over 120 hotel rooms.
Chestnut Mountain is a great place to ski and snowboard for anyone from first timers to beginers. Racers and freestylers alike will enjoy the varying terrain. Staff is friendly and eager to help. The terrain park is the best around and the after life is great.
