BV Ski & 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.

For the 2018-2019 season, the BV teams will expand considerably to meet the growing needs of the BV family at large.
