Cancelled: Vermont Land Trust Celebration of the Nordic Trails + Apres Ski at the Sports Center

March 15 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

UNFORTUNATELY, THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED… BUT WE INTEND TO GIVE IT ANOTHER GO NEXT YEAR!

Please join us for an afternoon of exploring on the conserved lands at Bolton Valley. Friends of Bolton Valley Nordic & Backcountry and Catamount Trail Association will lead you on snowshoe and ski tours.

This event is $20 for adults and free for children 12 and under in support of Vermont Land Trust’s various initiatives. Register in advance here. Does not include access to Bolton Valley’s NBU (Nordic/Backcountry/Uphill Trails) or lifts for the day.

If you don’t have a season pass, in addition to the $20 registration fee to VLT, you will need to purchase a day ticket for access to the NBU (nordic, backcountry and uphill) trails for a reduced price of $10 on this day only (normally $17). Rentals will also be offered at 20% off normal retail pricing and available first come, first served.
