Opening Day

Date: Dec 9 2017

Opening Day on Friday, Dec. 8: We're excited to announce that Opening Day will be one day earlier than planned and we'll get the lifts spinning on Friday, December 8. Temps have been in and out of the snowmaking zone for the past few weeks. Our snowmakers have been hard at work taking advantage of any cold spell that they can. We’ll open up with three lifts: Mighty Mite, Mid-Mountain, and Snowflake, providing access to three trails: Mighty Mite, Bear Run, and Sprig O’ Pine. Expect frozen granular surfaces. Lift tickets will be just $35 at the mountain, but of course you can always buy online in advance and save. Check the Snow Report for the word on the latest conditions.

Early Season Schedule: We will be open Friday through Sunday this weekend and we will NOT have night skiing, lifts will run from 9am - 4pm each day. Lifts will be closed on Monday - Wednesday of next week, re-opening on Thursday. We'll start our regular night skiing schedule on Thursday (12/14) with lifts running until 10pm. 

Meet the Owners: The DesLauriers family, along with a small team of local investors, re-purchased Bolton Valley this past April. The DesLauriers family is thrilled to be back home at Bolton Valley and are looking forward to welcoming everyone back to the mountain this winter. Members of the family will be at the base lodge on Saturday morning at 8 am to have coffee and chat with guests. Free coffee and hot chocolate will be provided from 8 - 9 am. At 8:45 am we'll head outside for an Opening Day group photo by the Mid-Mountain lift and everyone will have a chance to get in a few turns with our new owners.
