When Santa Claus takes his pre-Christmas vacation, he spends it at Bolton Valley. We dig that, so as part of our annual Santa Sunday, anyone who dresses head-to-toe in Kris Kringle attire will ski for free. Please arrive at Guest Services by 10am and meet in the base area for a group photo and runs off the Vista Quad.

Today, 5 lifts will turn and 54 trails will be open. Skies are currently cloudy over the mountain and we expect partly sunny skies with temperatures in the upper 20's and a very light breeze. No need for a puffy coat today. Conditions all over the mountain are fantastic, especially for this time of year, and I'd highly suggest checking out the snow over at Wilderness. Peggy Dow's is a great cruiser with breathtaking views. If you're into bumps, Vermont 200 and Vista Glades are great, along with Moose Run and Bolton Outlaw.

We groomed 33 trails overnight, including favorites like Hard Luck, Cobrass and Wilderness Liftline. There shouldn't be much crusty stuff left out there, so prepare for some easy turns. If you're into freestyle. the Sprig O' Pine park will be open with six freestyle features and our crew is working on building Hide Away as well. Expect that to open as soon as possible as a beginner terrain park.

Snowmaking has finished on Alta Vista, Beech Seal and Hide Away, and our snowmakers are currently running guns on Timberline Lane and Upper Villager in preparation for making the push down to Timberline base area. Stay tuned for more updates on their progress in the next few days.
