Only in the Midwest will you find such an unexpected diamond in the rough. High above the Mississippi, tucked nicely in the hills near historic Galena, Chestnut Mountain is a premier Illinois resort that offers nineteen trails 7 acre terrain "The Farside" featuring over 30 rails & features, which span 220 rolling acres with a total vertical drop of 475 feet. Midwesterners love their elbow room and Chestnut Mountain is no exception. Thanks to two quads, four triple chair lifts, and three surface lifts, lines are virtually non-existent.

When darkness falls, great skiing and awesome views continue outside. But that's also just about the time things get exciting inside. Chestnut Mountain has 100 slopeside rooms in close proximity to an indoor pool, sauna and jacuzzi. The Sunset Grille restaurant serves up fine dining favorites or come experience one of our handcrafted beers or wines in The Summit Food & Spirits and dine on the area's finest contemporary cuisine with a modern flair.

During summertime there is no shortage of activities for the young or young at heart. Ride the Alpine Slide or cruise the river on a Mississippi Explorer Cruise. Bike or hike trails showcasing our area's unique geologic beauty. Or test your short game on our 18-hole mini golf course. Whatever it is you want to do on a mountain, chances are you can do it here.

Chestnut Mountain has all the amenities you've come to expect in a resort destination, yet it's midwestern roots and small town charm always keeps folks coming back for more.
