Projects

Pisten Bully Purchase:

CHNSA has the opportunity to take a quantum leap in our grooming with the purchase of a used Pisten Bully 100 grooming machine. This is a major capital expense for the Ski Area and we are seeking $30,000 in donations for the purchase. Time is of the essence with this opportunity, and we would love to encourage our skiing members to consider a tax-deductible donation to CHNSA to help with the purchase.

You can read more about the Pisten Bully, why the Board thinks it's a great idea, and find a link to donate here.

Trails Improvements and Expansion:

CHNSA has some unfinished trail priorities that we'd like to undertake in the near future.  It has long been remarked that, while the parking lot at CHNSA may seem crowded, once out on the trails skiers experience the welcome solitude that our trails provide. By expanding our trail network we will be able to expand this experience for our skiers.

You can read about planned trail expansion projects here.

Improved Parking and Entrance Sign:

Enhanced parking is a concern for us, as we maxed out of parking space during busy weekends this past winter.  We are looking to take steps to enlarge the usable space and mitigate the undesirable aspects of mud season on the parking experience.

Expanded Warming Hut:

We have heard from a number of long-term friends of CHNSA that an enhanced hut facility at the parking lot would be a great idea to create a cozier and more welcoming scene for skiers. The existing 10’ x 14’ warming hut was constructed primarily with donated materials and time. We’d like to duplicate this effort with a larger, more versatile structure.
