Two New Electric Air Compressors For Snowmaking

The Season Pass Deadline is Monday, Sept. 24

Thursday and the Weekend

New Season Long BV Ski and Snowboard Teams

 

We are in an exciting time of year. The leaves are starting to change colors and that occasional chill in the air means winter is not too far away. With the changing of the seasons we are excited to continue on with the VT Beer Paring Pop Up Series, the Suffer Fest, Disc Golf Leagues, and more. But, we also have our Season Pass Deadline on Monday and exciting news about an upgrade to our snowmaking system. Read on for all the details.

Two New Electric Air Compressors For Snowmaking

 

We are thrilled to announce that we are moving forward with the purchase of two new electric air compressors for our snowmaking system. The new high-efficiency compressors will reduce the amount of diesel fuel we use by an average of 25,000 gallons per year and help us extend the snowmaking season. This project was partially funded by passionate Bolton Valley skiers and riders who purchased the Five Year Green Pass. The project will be completed in time for the snowmaking season to begin in November as we march toward a planned Opening Day of Dec. 8, 2018. 

Five Year Green Passes are still on sale for $2200 through September 24, funds from additional sales will reduce the amount of financing needed for the project.

 

The Season Pass Deadline is Monday, Sept. 24

2018-19 All Access Season Passes are currently on sale. Not only do you get access to 71 alpine trails, over 1200 acres of Nordic & backcountry terrain, and night skiing until 10pm, but All Access Season Pass Holders are also automatically part of the Freedom Pass. This pass gets you three free lift tickets at each of our 19 partner mountains. East coast favorites include Magic Mountain, Dartmouth Skiway, Whaleback, Plattekill and more.

Be sure to purchase your season pass by Monday, Sept. 24 before the prices go up. Then get ready for a snow filled season at Bolton Valley and beyond.

If you'd like to purchase and pick up your pass this weekend, then swing by the South Burlington High School Booster Swap on Saturday, or the Alpine Shop on Sunday, when we'll be on-site printing and selling season passes.

  

 

Thursday and the Weekend

 

While the seasons may be starting to change, we're still rocking on with our summer/fall schedule. Thursday, join us for the Disc Golf League (12 holes this week as the sun sets a bit too early for a full 18), Suffer Fest, Yoga, and the VT Beer Pairing Pop Up Series at the Village Café. This week we'll feature beer from Collective Arts and we'll have a special art gallery set up to kick off our fall edition of the VT Beer Paring Pop Up Series.

This weekend join us for brunch in the Village Café either morning, a free guided hike on Sunday morning and the disc golf league on Sunday at noon.

 

New Season Long BV Ski and Snowboard Teams

We are thrilled to bring back, in modern form, the ski team heritage which has been a part of Bolton Valley since our beginning. Whether team members will go on to skiing fame like several of the DesLauriers', go on to racing success, or are simply in it for the excitement of the sport, our goal is to create a life-long love of skiing & riding. Teams are season long programs meeting on weekends and holiday weeks. There are several different options for skiers and riders ranging in age from 3 - 18 years old.
