Despite Mid-Winter Conditions for Skiing and Riding Bolton Valley Officials Show Signs of Spring Fever

Special 2013-2014 All Access Season Pass Price Through Midnight April 7 plus An “Extra Inning” Weekend of Skiing and Riding April 6-7

BOLTON VALLEY, VT (4/3/2013) -

Seeing snow falling outside their window while watching the opening day of baseball on television has put Bolton Valley officials in a feverish mood this spring, so much so that as part of the Extra Innings Weekend this weekend, April 6-7, resort officials will offer a special Extra Innings deal on the 2013-14 All Access Season Pass, just $10 more per pass than the early prices that were offered in March. This deal is available only from now until midnight on April 7; then the pass prices will go up again.

Recent heavy snowfalls have made for what some skiers and riders may argue are the best conditions of the season and while the calendar may say April, snow conditions tell a different story. Originally set to close on March 31, Bolton will remain open for one additional weekend of skiing and riding, April 6-7. The area will be closed midweek, April 1-5.

“We’ll also offer special pricing on our season-long programs like ski leases and lockers,” said Josh Arneson, director of sales and marketing at Bolton Valley. “Nordic passes will be just $5 more than the early March prices too. And if you buy your pass now, you can use it to ski and ride during the Extra Innings Weekend – this weekend – for free. Sounds like a homerun to me.” Lift tickets will be $29/person this weekend as well.

The mountain anticipates about 40 trails of intermediate and advanced skiing and riding open for the last weekend of the season. The Vista Quad will be the solo lift for the weekend, but will take guests to a variety of terrain and trails. The Nordic Center also will be open.
