Alpine Slide at Chestnut Mountain Resort

8700 W. Chestnut Mountain Road, Galena, 61036, IL

The fun at Chestnut Mountain doesn’t end in the winter. Kids will love careening down the mountain in the warmer months on the 2,000-foot-long Alpine Slide. The ride down provides breathtaking views of the mighty Mississippi River below, as well as the surrounding three states — Illinois, Iowa, directly across the Mississippi, and Wisconsin, off in the distance. Getting back up the mountain is easy — just hop on the ski lift!

Children under 48 inches tall and 7 years old must ride with an adult. Tickets are $8 per ride for an adult and $7 for kids under 12. Unlimited rides cost $25 on weekdays, and $30 on weekends for both adults and kids.
