Hi, this is Mike, I'm back for another season at Bolton. It's been a while since I last addressed you, but here I am, spinning more threads of wisdom and wit in yet another newsletter for you, dear readers.
Here at Bolton Valley, we like to think of ourselves as a little neighborhood, and we're quite fond of the way it's shaped up over the years. The best thing about a great neighborhood? There's always that one house where everybody loves to hang out. That one backyard where family and friends gather for something fun going on. Here at BV, we're pretty sure our house is that house.
The best neighborhoods make you feel comfortable, they make you feel like you're a part of the community, and they make you feel happy. We like to think we do those things pretty well. At our house, our backyard has a backyard (think backcountry). At our house, the trails are buried in snow. At our house, we're all friends.
So on behalf of all of us here at Bolton Valley, welcome back. Welcome home.
We really love our little community on the mountain, and we always welcome newcomers to the neighborhood. So, visit the Alpine Shop, Outdoor Gear Exchange, Slopetyle Ski & Ride, and Ski & Snowboard Express on select days between Oct. 20 and 23, to pick up a couple $35 lift tickets tickets and become our newest friends. With a limited supply of 250 per-location, they'll go fast - don't miss out on this! Get the complete schedule and more details online.
NEW! At our house, you don't have to be in college to get a great deal. With the Ski Bum Pass, anyone age 18-25 can purchase unrestricted skiing & riding access for just $159.* No college ID required. Bolton Valley is open seven days a week in season, is the closest major ski area to our neighboring towns and is open for night skiing until 8pm Wednesday - Saturday, and until 10pm on Fridays. Better still, there will be a free bus running every Saturday and Sunday from Burlington to Bolton beginning on January 17 through the end of the season.
A Ski Bum Value Pass also is available for $129 if purchased by Oct. 31 and is valid every day of the 2014-2015 season except Saturdays. After the Oct. 31 deadline, prices increase to $269 for the Ski Bum All Access Pass and $239 for the Value Pass.
*Must purchase by Oct. 31 to receive early-season rate.
At our house, we want to make sure everyone is able to partake in the fun. That's why we have the 11-week season-long program for children designed to foster strong instructional relationships, familiarity, teamwork and increased on-snow confidence. Parents receive regular communication throughout the program from coaches and program supervisors.
The best houses also have ice cream, and we've got that covered. Kids will participate in fun events such as the year-end Cookie Race and the Ice Cream Social & Sundae Party.
Our house has plenty of room for guests, whether it's a week-long stay or just a quick overnight retreat. Book your ski-and-stay packages for the first days of the season (Dec. 13-24) and be the first one in line at the Vista Quad when lifts start spinning. Ski and Stay rates start at just $59 pp/pn. With the Slopeside Inn literally steps from lifts, food, and entertainment, you'll be glad you called out of work on Monday morning.
