Bolton Valley Creates Week of Holiday Activities Packed With Value for Christmas Week 2013

BOLTON VALLEY, VT (12/20/2013) -

Bolton Valley event planners have been hard at work, creating a line-up of fun holiday events for Christmas Week 2013 that are family-oriented and affordable. With all-inclusive packages that offer true ski-to-your-door lodging, families will enjoy a holiday week filled with skiing and riding together.

“Taking even a family of four on a week-long ski vacation can be a challenge but our goal at Bolton is to create ways that make family ski vacations easy and full of value,” said Josh Arneson, director of marketing. “Parents don’t have to haul kids in ski gear in and out of the car all week because our lodging is right at the base of the mountain. Families can walk to two restaurants for meals or to our cafeteria, deli or our general store for items to cook-in. Our childcare facility, ski and snowboard school, Sports Center and Indoor Amusement Center are all just steps away from our guests’ rooms. Convenience is key when you’re traveling with kids.”

Every day during the holiday period, from Dec. 26, 2013 through Jan. 1, 2014, Bolton Valley will be hosting free special events for the whole family. Snowshoe tours, bonfires with hot chocolate, ice cream socials, kids movies, a teen dance party, and more. All leading up to the holiday week showstopper: New Years Eve Torchlight Parade and Fireworks.

Ski and Stay Packages for the holiday week start at $149 per person per night and includes the holiday week activities plus daily lift tickets, daily continental breakfast, and unlimited use of the Bolton Valley Sports Center complete with indoor pool hot tub and sauna.
