Updated Monday, December 9th at 8:46 AM

Good morning! We’re waking up on this Monday morning still in disbelief of the incredible early season conditions we’ve seen that past few days.  We certainly hope you were able to get out on the hill and enjoy some of The Bolton Snowgolobe effect.  Things are holding steady this morning, and we’re even seeing a couple of snow showers trickle on in.  Please keep in mind that early season conditions and thin cover may still be found scoured throughout the mountain.

As the day continues however, we’re expecting temps to rise into the 40’s.  With these higher temps, it is becoming more and more likely that we will also be seeing a mixed bag of precipitation.  No need to panic!  The warmup window we’re looking at is small, and we’ll likely be back into snowmaking temperatures within the next 24-36 hours.  Not to mention we have a solid base of natural and manmade snow to work with and some of the best groomers in the game.

We will be spinning Vista and Mighty Mite this morning from 9am-4pm, but the impending weather may have an impact on our lift operations.  Please keep on eye on this report for the most up to date information.  Get after it early this morning!

Please note THERE IS NO NIGHT SKIING TONIGHT. NIGHT PASS HOLDERS — we invite you to join us today for regular operating hours as well as any other day until Christmas Day (and after March 29th) that night skiing isn’t offered. 


Additional Useful Early Season Info

If you're coming up to get your pass printed, you're not alone if history is any guide for opening weekend. We will have people/signage directing you to the shortest line for pass printing. In all likelihood, the Guest Services area in the main base area is not the smart place to head, hint, hint ;)

Hours of Operation

Lastly...

To our beloved backcountry and free heeling, human powered uphill enthusiasts

You must have a ticket or pass AT ALL TIMES to access any of the Bolton Valley trails. Whether or not lifts are currently spinning is not relevant. This includes nordic, backcountry and designated uphill routes on Alpine terrain (the Wilderness and Timberline uphill routes).

If you purchase a NBU (Nordic/Backcountry/Uphill) Pass, we will pre-load your RFID Card with 3 one ride lift tickets (a $60 value) that you can use over several days or just one and share with friends if you like!

NBU Passes currently retail for $179, unless you're a Catamount Trail Association Member, in which case you can get them for $129 through December 31, 2019. For more information on becoming a CTA Member and unlocking the $50 savings on your BV NBU Pass, Go HERE

It is apparent that the uphill travel community is thriving at Bolton Valley, and we love that! There’s nothing better than earning some turns.  That being said, please stick to our designated uphill travel routes and adhere to our uphill travel policy. When you venture off the designated routes, you are not just putting yourself and our groomers at risk—you are jeopardizing the future of something we feel is only just beginning. 

The main points we want to emphasize here are:

1. You must have a NBU (Nordic/Backcountry/Uphill) Ticket or Pass AT ALL TIMES when on ANY of our trails (regardless of whether lifts are spinning or not). Please be ready to show your ticket/pass when asked and/or your receipt (showing that your purchased a ticket online) if you arrive at a time when there's noone at Guest Services (you can buy online before arrival or on your phone once here)

2. STAY IN THE SKIN TRACK - Please stay on the edge of the designated uphill routes in a single file line and respect the skin track, please - NO HIKING!

3. NO DOGS - We love dogs, too, but please leave them at home. They don't mix well with mountain operations or other skiers coming down who are not responsible for your dog's safety.

4. For the love of all things holy - show some love and respect for our hard working groomers and snow makers and stay away from them and their equipment. Just because you can see them doesn't mean they can see or hear you. Not only that, they are the lifeblood of what we do here and deserve space and respect. Should you be disobeying the above rules, they may not be quite as friendly... and rightfully so...

We love uphill skiing as much as you do and are psyched to be on the front edge of this evolution in resort skiing and riding. Help us demonstrate that uphill and lift access skiing and riding can be harmonized by following the rules that keep everyone safe and enable us to do the work we need to do to operate the ski area.
