Chestnut received almost perfect scores in the family-friendly category. The ratings were based primarily on readers' average ranking, number of reviews, and specific comments made in over the winter season. "More and more skiers and snowboarders are relying on the word of their peers when they make resort choices," said Mountain News President and Publisher Rob Brown, whose company publishes "We believe the importance of reader advisories will continue to grow each year and these annual awards provide a peek into their thinking." Reviewers were clear in their comments: "It's one of the best beginner hills in the area… Chestnut is a great place to learn and hone basic skills. Even the most advanced skier can work edging on one ski all the way down a black here and be challenged… It's a great place to vacation, great for the family, fun for those wishing to get into snow sports." Chestnut brings skiers and riders 19 runs and the Midwest's largest terrain park.
