It is always a good sign when the weather report predicts sun. It is an even better sign when the temperatures are expected to be in the single digits and low teens, especially after all of the cold temperatures that we have been having this season. As we move into Friday, the snow is great, the wind should be mild from the SW at 12-20 mph and we will be 100% open.

The plan is to do some skate grooming on the low angle trails overnight. Check back to this report in the morning for specifics on which trails have been covered. We are hoping to get back to the normal skate grooming and classic grooming as soon as possible.  Until then I'd recommend leaving the skinny skis at home and hitting the powder rich backcountry. There's waist-deep spots in there. The wax of the day will be Green. 

2015-16 Nordic Season Passes are now on sale and you can ski for free for the remainder of this season when you buy yours today.

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.
