  • We visited on a nice, sunny day, not skiing but it is still a nice place to see/visit. Great views. There seems to be a lot to do: skiing, segways, zip line chair, etc. We did not stay there so I cann...  read more »
  • 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.
  • My husband and I had our wedding at Chestnut Mountain last month. The whole process was absolutely wonderful. We live out of state, the wedding coordinators were very prompt and professional. They helped us to plan our ceremony and were able to get us in Christmas Eve for our food tasting while we were back. When we arrived the day before the wedding all of the staff went out of their way to assist us and make sure everything was set up perfect. The food was great and for all that was included, it was an excellent price. We would definitely recommend coming to this venue for a wedding.
