GSB Alumni All-Day Ski Trip to Chestnut Mountain

Chicago Booth Alumni Club of Chicago

January 19, 2008

Our All-Day Saturday Ski Trip offers plenty of fun for skiers and snowboarders of all ability levels, both on and off the slopes. If you’re new to winter sports, you can benefit from a free lesson offered by our PSIA-certified instructor. If you enjoy some friendly competition, come and participate in our NASTAR club race (all ability levels welcome). And on the bus and throughout the trip, you’ll find that there are plenty of opportunities to meet new friends and enjoy great refreshments. Trip participation limited to adults, 21 and over. We’ll ski at Chestnut Mountain, in Galena, IL, which offers skiers and riders beautiful views of the Mississippi River Valley from every run. There is a good variety of terrain and usually reliable snow conditions. Our all-day trip includes bus transportation, lifts, racing (optional) and ski instruction. Plus, after the slopes close we’ll make a stop in Galena for a great Italian SIT-DOWN DINNER at Fried Green Tomatoes restaurant (included in the price). Bus picks up skiers at two points: Downtown Chicago and Northwest Suburbs (Hoffman Estates). The bus trip is about 2 ½ hours from Chicago.
