With Thanksgiving only a few days away, many people will take some time to reflect on what they're thankful for. We've had one thing to be especially thankful for recently, cold weather. The temperature has consistently dipped into the teens over the last few days, allowing us to turn the guns on and make some snow. Take a look at our video from yesterday to see how stoked I am!

While our snowmakers have been hard at work getting the mountain ready over the past few days, our entire team at Bolton has been busy on several projects over the summer and fall. In fact there has been over $400,000 of improvements during the off season. Read on for more details.

I want to wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving. From our Bolton Valley family to yours, have a safe and happy holiday.

Opening Day is right around the corner, we'll see you soon.



New for 2015-16

We've been hard at work throughout the offseason making improvements to Bolton Valley. In addition to paving the circle, significant work has been done in the lodge, hotel, Sports Center and more.

Thirteen suites in the hotel have been completely renovated. Upgrades include new floors, countertops, carpeting, furniture and bedding. The exterior of the hotel has received a facelift, it's amazing how far power washing and new paint goes toward making a building look fresh.

The Sports Center is getting some new paint along with significant roofing work. The new Poolside Lounge will open this season serving wraps, sandwiches, paninis, beer and wine. Throw in updated furniture and some new cross country ski rental equipment and the Sports Center will definitely be a hot spot to hangout this season.

South of Solitude will debut this winter in the Timberline Lodge featuring fresh burritos and tacos.

The Explorer Clubhouse is undergoing major changes. A point-of-sale system and children's rental equipment have been added in addition to some remodeling to improve the flow for skiers and riders. Instead of going to three different places to set your child up for a lesson, the kid's room is now a one stop shop. And, the walk to the Explorers Clubhouse will be smoother as all flooring on the lower level of the base lodge has been replaced.

In BV Sports nearly half of the rental and lease fleet has been updated with new equipment. New ski boots, including expanded youth sizes, have been added along with new high end women's snowboards. Nearly all of our youth twin tip skis have been replaced with a brand new selection of Line skis. A hefty amount of new adult equipment from Rossignol rounds out the upgrades in the rental shop.

We've completely rebuilt the loading dock on the backside of the base lodge. The new loading dock will increase efficiency for the unloading trucks and help us save energy. Our dumpsters have been moved and we have decreased the number of trash cans in lieu of three part dumping stations for garbage, compostable and recyclable materials. Nearly all of our paper ware is now compostable. Base lodge lighting has also been upgraded to be more energy efficient.
