I've been feeling a little under the weather lately. I'm not sure I can pinpoint it, but something was definitely getting to me. As I pulled into the unplowed parking lot around 5:45am this morning and stepped out the door, my foot sunk into the snow as my boot disappeared. Immediately I began to feel better, my sinuses cleared up and my breathing was much more fluid. After clicking in and hopping on the chair at Vista, I watched one of those lucky patrollers getting first tracks on Valley Road and really started to feel much better. Finally, as I dropped in and skied down the 5" of freshies on Mousehole and Valley Road, I realized it was simply some powder that was the cure for all my ailments. If you've felt down or under the weather lately, skiing in some ankle deep snow could be just what the doctor ordered. Lucky for you, we're forecast for a couple more inches through Saturday to combine with this recent storm.

We're excited to announce that Timberline will be open this weekend. Along with some awesome T-line action will be the debut of South of Solitude, serving burritos and tacos. If you're planning on visiting us this weekend, make sure to visit our online store and save around 20% on lift tickets when you buy in advance. While we welcome the return of this winter weather and snow, we know Ullr and Mother Nature are not done yet. So please, keep those snow dances coming.

 

See you on the hill,

Tucker

Weekend Activities

              

There are a number of fun events for the whole family at BV this weekend. Saturday we are hosting a Family Fun Race and Backcountry Scavenger Hunt Fundraiser for the Bryant Cabin and Bolton Lodge. You can race against each other in your funniest costume, or explore the backcountry during the scavenger hunt. Registration and raffle tickets will be available at Guest Services, and there are some great prizes from local businesses.

Later in the evening head down to the Ski School Explorers Room for Paint Night with local artist Natasha Bogar. Click here for information on how to register.

Sunday, join us in the James Moore Tavern as Chad Hollister rocks the night away from 7 - 10pm.    

             

 

Family Activity Weeks

We could all use a little more quality time with our families. Why not bring everyone skiing during either February Break or Vermont Vacation Week? Buy tickets online in advance to save money, then, when you're done skiing, we're bringing you top-notch family entertainment - for free! The weeks are packed with magic shows, balloon twisting, campfires and more!

50th Anniversary Project

The 2016-17 season will mark the 50 years of lift served skiing here at Bolton. We're hoping to go all out next year in celebration and need your help. Our first goal is to round up as many historical pieces as possible. If you have any antique trail maps, buttons, brochures, etc. you name it, we want to see it. Everyone who shares something with us by March 31 will be entered into a drawing for a 2016-17 All Access Season Pass.

The second goal is to gather stories of Bolton Valley. We all know it's much more than just the mountain that makes this place so special. So we want to hear from you what your favorite memories of Bolton are. We'll be running an essay contest in order to gather as many stories as possible. We will pick a few of our favorites and the top essay will receive a 2016-17 All Access Season Pass, while a handful of other will be rewarded with lift tickets.
