Bolton Valley $29 Lift Tickets are “Popping Up” In Four Vermont Locations This Week

BOLTON VALLEY, VT (1/16/2012) -

In an effort to show that winter has finally “popped” in Vermont, Bolton Valley, big mountain skiing and riding packed with value just 30 minutes from Burlington, will be selling through this Friday at four Vermont ski and snowboard shops, a limited number of $29 lift tickets valid during the 2011-2012 season. Only 250 tickets will be sold at the South Burlington, Burlington, Montpelier, and Richmond shops, and there is a limit of two tickets per customer.

“We know winter has been hiding for awhile, but, along with our trail count and natural snowfall total, it has finally popped,” said Josh Arneson, director of sales and marketing at Bolton. “We have partnered with four, local Vermont shops to sell these specially priced lift tickets. With more than half off of a weekend lift ticket price, visiting one of these shops this week to grab these tickets is a no-brainer.”

Lift tickets are valid for a day of skiing or riding any day until the end of the 2011-12 season, excluding Feb. 18-26, 2012. Tickets are non-refundable. Tickets purchased at the sale are not valid at the lifts and must be turned in at Guest Services for a lift ticket on the day you would like to ski. Tickets may not be resold. Tickets are valid for all ages.
