  • No, this isn't Vail, but 2.5 hours from Chicago you won't find anything near as good. Chestnut Mountain is in Illinois' Driftless Area, which wasn't flattened completely by glaciers (like the rest of ...  more »

  • The mountain is beautiful and the bar has a good outside patio. I give it 3 stars because when we were there were having staffing issues. The patio area only had 1 staff member working and he never even acknowledged us. We had to get out own drink at the bar.
  • I snowboard at chestnut every year and definitely recommend it!! Nice terrain park with lots of rails and jumps, and on the other side they have a variety of slow or fast slopes. Nice helpful staff, outfitter store and restaurant. Only thing I don't like is the 5* price for the food that isn't 5* quality, but all in all it really is a fantastic resort. I definitely look forward to going to chestnut and I'm bringing more buddies this year 🏂⛷
  • Always a great day. The rentals are kept in good condition. The kids lessons are awesome! The teachers were very good with the kids and they moved them along at the right pace for each child. Slopes are in good condition. The hotel could use a bit of updating, but overall a great stay. I've been skiing here for 25 years and I will keep coming back. The only thing I really don't like is that it is kinda spread out so you end up walking a lot.
  • Beautiful view; you can see the Mississippi River from the top of the ski hill. I visited Chestnut Mountain Resort during the summer, and the views were gorgeous. During the summer, you can ride an alpine slide down the ski hill, but ticket prices are pricey. A short zipline ride is also available on the ski hill. Fun and short activity for tourists during the summer.
  • Activities made up for the average room. There were numerous activities for all ages that kept this family busy. The luge and screaming eagle were the best, but minigolf and disc golf were also fun. The rooms were clean and hotel was quiet.
