Hello, Bolton Valley faithful!
I'm Mike and I'm the new Snow Reporter for the '13-'14 season. I'm stoked to be here at Bolton and I can't wait to get to know everyone. We're going to be doing some really fun things with the Snow Report this year, so be sure to follow that when we open up next week.
It's been a bit of a warm spell up here over the past few days with temperatures in the high 30's and low 40's. Trust us when we say that we're as excited as you are about getting up on the slopes again, and fortunately, we have some of the best snowmakers around to make that possible!
Colder temperatures are gradually returning and we plan to resume snowmaking this weekend - likely on Friday night. But, fear not, skiers and riders! We are still on track to start spinning the lifts on Saturday, Dec. 14! If everything goes well, we might even open on Friday, but stay tuned for further information on that.
In the meantime, here's a few early-season specials to whet your appetites.
For those of you who love to rip all the early-season turns, this is a deal for you.
Lift tickets from Opening Day through December 25th are just $25 when you purchase online by December 15th. That's closer than you think, so hurry up and click that link if you want the best rates on the mountain! When you purchase you will receive a print-at-home voucher that you can use any day from Opening Day through Dec. 25th. This makes a great early holiday gift for friends or family. Or, heck, treat yourself! You deserve it.
If a day trip does not make sense for you, we've got you covered with our $65 Happy Holiday ski and stay lodging package. When you book a slopeside hotel room for two and arrive on one of the twelve days from December 13-24, you pay only $65 per person for a night of lodging and a day of skiing. And, because we love you, we’ll throw in a continental breakfast and free access to our Sports Center which includes an indoor pool, hot tub and sauna.
No doubt you've heard of our Powder Pass. It's one of our signatures moves, allowing you to purchase five days of skiing and riding up front, then redeem them any time during the season. You can also redeem multiple tickets in one day so you can treat friends and family to a day at Bolton Valley.
Coming in at $199 for adults and $149 for our youth/college/senior guests, the Powder Pass offers tremendous savings. When you break it all down, adults ski or ride for less than $40 per day and youth/college/senior guests go for less then $30 per day.
You can purchase your Powder Pass online from now through December 13th. This is perfect for the skier or rider who wants to save money but might not ski enough days to justify the purchase of a season pass. This also makes a great stocking stuffer!
The holidays are a great time of year aren't they? Most everyone is in a great mood (despite being stressed out with holiday plans and family visits) and, best of all, the mountains are white again! So, come celebrate the spirit of the season at Bolton Valley by joining us on the hill for Santa Sunday!
On December 15th, guests dressed in full Santa Suits will receive a FREE lift ticket for the day. It's a super fun day that's not easily forgotten by staff or guests, and it helps get your ski legs back under you again.
So don your best crimson and white, strike an awesome pose and don't forget the sash!
Pick up your gear!!
It's hard to ski or ride without the essentials: boots, something under your feet and a lift ticket or season pass. Fortunately, we've got you covered there. This weekend, BV Sports will be open for season pass printing, season lease pickups, and retail sales at the following times:
- Friday 2:30 - 6:30 PM
- Saturday 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM
- Sunday 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM
If you can't make it up to the mountain to grab your pass this weekend, don't fret. We will also be printing passes at the Richmond Holiday Market on Saturday, 12/7, from 9am - 3:30pm. Look for us on the second floor of Town Hall.
BV Sports and Guest Services will begin their winter schedules on Friday, December 13th, each opening a half hour before the first lift. Guest Services will close at last chair, and BV Sports will shut down for the night 30 minutes later.
Thanks and stay tuned for more updates as we get closer to opening day.
