I am bringing my family to enjoy Chestnut for all day for only $6 a lift ticket. Maybe you should bring your family up too. If you can't bring your family then bring some friends, and if you don't have any friends, maybe you can make some while you are there.
They have rentals and lessons available, so this is a great day to learn at a lower than usual price.
If you are an experienced skier or snowboarder come out and have some fun at the best resort in all of Illinois.
