Backcountry Tours, Guiding, and Instruction

The world of Alpine Touring allows skiers and riders to access some of the most beautiful terrain Bolton Valley has to offer, beyond the chairlift. Private guided half-day or full-day tours and lessons are available through the BV Backcountry Program and are customized based on the duration and difficulty you are looking for. Regularly scheduled introductory clinics and group tours are available all season long on Saturdays and Sundays.  Backcountry Guides are also available 7 days a week for private tours and instructional clinics - booking ahead is encouraged especially during weekends and holidays.  Bolton Valley's extensive fleet of Dynafit alpine touring equipment is available for demo and rental, as well as Burton and Weston split-boards, bindings, and climbing skins.
