The snow has been soft and fun making it easy to rack up the run tally. The woods and glades are in great shape too. Were you found at BV tearing into the fresh snow today? If your answer is no, that is too bad. We accumulated five inches of fresh snow overnight and it had continued to fall well into this morning. That gives us 7-9 inches in the last 48 hours. Which means all over the mountain you will find fresh lines and unbeaten paths that will make your day complete tomorrow. The groomers should be extra soft tomorrow and cruise with ease. Temps will cool off overnight allowing the loose surface to tighten back up a bit before temps climb into the high 30s and low 40s under partly sunny skies Monday. Our groomer is aiming to lay 13 km of skate groomed and set 5 km of classic for tomorrow. The wax of the day will be Violet.

Looking to try out something different? We have fat bikes, snowshoes, splitboards, and AT demo gear and rentals for you to take out. New this year, check out our expanded line-up of backcountry educational programs and tours. Whether you need a little help learning the ropes or you are a seasoned backcountry traveler looking for a guided tour of our 1200 acres of terrain, we have a program that will fit your needs.

The Village Café music series has yet another weekend of music as Erin Cassels-Brown takes the stage once more on Friday and Julia Spelman will perform Saturday. On February 24, join us for the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Snow DaysThese free events give Vermonters and BCBS members the opportunity to try cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, in an effort to encourage physical activity during the cold winter months. Tickets and rentals will be free for all for Vermonters and all BCBS members from 11am-3pm.

Uphill Travel: The two on mountain uphill routes are open for uphill travel. While you are welcome to travel uphill anywhere on our Nordic and backcountry terrain, please limit your on-mountain uphill travel to only the two designated routes. Uphill travel is at your own risk and you will need either a ticket or season pass to use the trails. Please keep in mind that there are no dogs allowed on open or closed trails. Should you encounter any mountain operation vehicles please yield the right of way to them. Check the Uphill Travel Policy for more information.

Skiing or snowshoeing in the woods on or off designated trails within the ski area's boundaries is allowed. However, these areas are not maintained or monitored by Bolton personnel, and are neither open nor closed. Unmarked obstacles and hazards exist. Ski and snowshoe at your own risk. Do not ski or snowshoe alone--rather, stick to groups of 3 or more. Bolton Valley Nordic Center assumes no responsibility for damage to equipment within or outside the ski area's boundaries. Be aware, use good judgment, and ski/snowshoe accordingly. Keep in mind that skiing and snowshoeing in the woods may lead you away from Bolton Valley trails.
