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. That new snow will provide for some powder turns under the lights Tuesday night as lifts run until 10pm (and night skiing tickets are just $19.66) and it will set us up for a great day with fresh tracks on Wednesday. A few ropes dropped today thanks to softening snow under the sun pushing our trail count up to 24. Depending on how much new snow falls, we may be able to open more trails on Wednesday. We'll keep you updated right here with any additions to the trail count. 

Lifts & Conditions: Wednesday, 4 lifts will provide access to 24 trails, 14 of which will be groomed. Vista and Mighty Mite will open at 10am and Snowflake spins at 10:30am.  Vista will run until 10pm, Mighty Mite and Snowflake will run until 8pm. Mid-Mountain will run from 3pm until 9pm. Hide Away park is open with 6 features. With snow moving in overnight expect packed powder and powder on the mountain tomorrow.  

Snowmaking: Due to increasing temperatures, snowmakers will have to take a break for the next few days. The good news is that snowmaking on Spillway is complete. We expect to see that trail open in the next few days, once the groomers work their magic. Cobrass and the Moonlight Park are next up for snowmaking as soon as temperatures allow.

Events & Deals: This Wednesday January 18 is the start of both the Night Rider Series  and the Green Mountain Skimo Citizen Race Series. This Saturday enjoy classical music at The Ponds as the Vermont Mozart Festival makes a special stop at Bolton Valley. Every Tuesday through Saturday night is Late Night at Bolton Valley where lifts run until 10pm and tickets are just $19.66 starting at 4pm. Every non-peak Monday, enjoy skiing for only $19.66, additionally, you'll get half price rentals and 50% off select menu items at the James Moore Tavern. If you own a Subaru or Hyundai be sure to make plans to ski for free on Friday, January 27 on Subaru and Hyundai Day.

The easiest way to save on lift tickets is to buy online in advance (by midnight the night before).
