Thanksgiving Weekend

Skip the Mall and Come to the Mountain this Thanksgiving Weekend

Snow has fallen, temperatures have dropped, and winter has arrived at Bolton Valley. Come up this Thanksgiving weekend, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday and save big on gifts and gear at our new Big Rock Mountain Shop. 

Plus we are excited to announce that BV will be opening early for three pre-season dates:  Saturday, 11/24 and December 1st and 2nd before we open for the season as scheduled on December 8th. 


Grand Opening of the Big Rock Mountain Shop & Phoenix Book Nook

This Thanksgiving weekend is the grand opening of the Big Rock Mountain Shop and Phoenix Book Nook.

The Big Rock Mountain Shop is Bolton's brand new retail store located to the right of the clock tower in the main base village. The Mountain Shop offers skis, boards, bindings, helmets, goggles, and other hard goods, as well as a wide array of apparel and gifts.

The Phoenix Book Nook, loced inside the Mountain Shop, is your doorway into a world of fantastic stories from Vermont's own Phoenix Books. Pick up a good read for the lodge, or a new favorite to take home with you.

$20 Happy Holidays - Early Season Lift Tickets

The Bolton Valley ski and snowboard season is set to kick off on December 8th, and when you pre-purchase your lift ticket on Cyber Monday you can ski from Opening Day through Christmas (12/25) for just $20 per day. There is no limit to how many tickets you can buy so plan to spend a few days on the mountain for just $20 each. The window rate from Opening Day through December 25 will depend on open terrain, but will be no less than $35 for adults.

Night skiing is scheduled to start on Dec. 11 and will run until 10pm Tuesdays - Saturdays. 

Early Season tickets purchased on Cyber Monday will only be valid from Dec. 8 through Dec. 25, a period of 18 operating days. If Bolton is open only 14 or fewer days in that period then tickets will be valid for dates to be determined at the end of the season. Please plan to use your early season lift tickets by Dec. 25. There will be no refunds.
