Snow Got You Down…..

February 12, 2018 by Cheryl Farruggia

….Well Take the Ski Lift up to Chestnut Mountain.

Chicago and the Midwest have been hit will mountains of snow over the last few days.  Kids have enjoyed a snow day or two and some sledding but most of the adults have spent their time digging out, salting, and battling the slick roads and weather stricken traffic conditions.  Give yourself a break and head on over to Galena to warm up, relax, drink some wine, and go skiing.

Chestnut Mountain has something for everyone with 19 ski slopes, 3,500-ft run and 475-ft drop of Chestnut Mountain.  For the beginner they have Old Main, Bunny, Acorn, and Rookie’s Ridge while you get your ski legs ready.

Intermediate, advanced, and freestyle terrains are also available for the more experienced skiers and snowboarders. From novice to black diamond, riding through 220 acres of Chestnut Mountain will leave you breathless and in love.

Chestnut Mountain’s Far Side Terrain is the Midwest’s largest snow-covered terrain park, and all seven acres of its vastness is accessible through a triple chairlift.  Their 25 unique rails will have you entertained for hours.  Then come back home to us at The Cloran Mansion for a soak in your hot tub and snuggle up to a warm fire in your room for a romantic evening or a go downtown and enjoy some of the nightlife of Galena.

We can help you set up reservations when you book your stay.  We look forward to hearing all about your adventure.
