News & Notes:  We started the day with sunny skies but a steely coat of grey now hovers overheard. These clouds are expected to start yielding new snow sometime this evening. Snow is expected to fall overnight and through the day on Wednesday as temps will be in the upper 20s. Recently the lack of substantial snowfall and warmer temps has left some of the lower trails a bit bare for skiing and the new snow may help get them back into skiing shape. Today, Upper and Middle Maple Loop still have coverage, but snowshoes would be more suitable for the lower portion. We'll keep the groomer off the terrain until the storm passes. Expect fresh grooming for Thursday. Please be aware early season conditions exist and you will encounter many hidden and unmarked obstacles such as stumps, rocks, waterbars and thin areas. The wax of the day will be Violet.

Fat Biking: Fat Biking is now permitted on Picnic and Valley Loops. You need to have a Nordic ticket or pass so stop by the Nordic Center before you head out. Please note, at this time we are only allowing Fat Biking on Picnic and Valley, please stay off of other Nordic, backcountry and alpine trails. Thanks, have fun and be sure to follow these Best Practices.

Uphill Travel: The two on mountain uphill routes are open for uphill travel. Please limit your uphill travel to only those routes. Check the Uphill Travel Policy for more information.

Events & Deals:  The Wednesday Night Green Mountain Skimo Citizen Race Series kicks off this Wednesday. Be sure to check out all our Nordic events including the 24 Hours of Bolton Backcountry race on February 11 and 12.

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.
