Know Before You Go

Thurs 8/5 at 9:50 am

Lift Schedule Through Aug 15:
Wed – Fri 12pm – 7:15pm

(may get earlier 2nd half of August with earlier sunset – stay tuned – we’ll run as late as we can that will still allow our patrol / lift ops to finish their post public clearings safely)


Sat – Sun 10am – 6pm

Current Closed Trails: Double Down, Outlaw, Powerlines, Danger Pond & Sleepy Hollow

Current Open Trails: Everything else including 3 Blues: Vista Glades, Broken Bridge (finishing on ‘OO’ trail) and the new Wright Brothers blue freeride trail (see full list of trails, their ratings and status in table further down below)

It’s going to be another gorgeous day up here on the mountain. It’s been a Sunshine daydream up here all week and trails are drying out very nicely. With Double Down being closed, bikers may still access one love via the trail. The ones that are closed are for maintenance on the trials or nearby lift lines/towers mostly. Stay tuned for more ropes to drop in the coming days as well as – NEW Blue Jump TRAIL by the weekend?!?!? Stay tuned…

Inbound Fun:
Thursday: Pickleball & Bonfires (by Sports Center) Friday: Wanna join our awesome team? We’re hosting a Virtual Job Fair from 10am – 1 pm Friday 8/6. Book a 20 minute call with a department manager to see if we might be a good fit. Later on that day, Friday Night Disc Golf under the LED lights, 8-10pm, $10 a head, $5 for rental discs. It’s on the 9 hole chip ‘n putt course under the Vista Lift, super fun night time stroll with friends. Saturday: FREE Live Music on the Lawn with Two Stroke Motors as lift service winds down.

INTERMEDIATE RIDERS: Vista Glades, Broken Bridge, and Wright Brothers are your best friends again! Enjoy the flowy, bermy blue Vista Glades from the top and then exit onto the Work Road. From there, keep going to Broken Bridge and eventually to Wright Brothers, our new blue freeride trail. So excited about this new Wright Brothers trail with her table top jumps and general intermediate free ride moxy to complement the big berms of Vista Glades. We hope you enjoy some of this new flow, as we can’t wait to bring you more of it, thanks to our hard working trail crew and the efforts of the world class trail building team at Gravity Logic.

If you do elect to duck into Broken Bridge, the bottom section remains very wet. Instead, the trail will finish with a re-route to 00 (pronounced “Double Aught”), which is indeed a Black Diamond trail intended for Advanced Riders. That said, the majority of the technical terrain on 00 trail is above where you will merge onto it from Broken Bridge and is a relatively short section of the trail. This is a great opportunity to PRE RIDE, RE RIDE & FREE RIDE a section of black diamond trail we think is attainable for intermediates looking to progress. Here we’ve highlighted that section of the trail on the map for you:

Re-route at the bottom of Broken Bridge with the trail finishing on OO.

However, Beginners to Advanced Riders alike should consider checking the Progression Zone, Pump Track,and Camp Loops today. They’re pretty sweet – down by the Sports Center – and can be found in the lower right section of the Mountain Bike trail map:

Progression Zone, Pump Track, and “Camp Loops” of Rocky’s Roller, Easy Chase, and Hanzo’s Hallow are great alternatives to the steeper terrain serviced by the lifts in the downhill bike park.

Pictured Below is Wright Bros. Wright Bros is a jumpy, flowy, freeride trail that rides at an intermediate level.

A few friendly reminders:

– Lifts can stop and start at any time. No standing on lift unload area decks OR climbing the lift towers at any time for any reason.

– The trails on Vista and Wilderness terrain are for intermediate and advanced riders only at this time. We look very forward to building 7+ miles of new green/blue flow trails with Gravity Logic in the years to come, but our most beginner friendly trails can be found down by the Sports Center (see map below – “Progression Zone” and neighboring trails)
– With a purchase of a Bolton Valley lift ticket you adhere to all signs, notices about protected lands and restoration sites, and to staying on trail at all time.
– The ONLY way to start your climb to mountain bike is via the Wilderness RFID gate and Wilderness Work Road. No other uphill routes currently permitted.
– Please use caution and Pre Ride, Re Ride, Free Ride. Please ride with extra caution as there are definitely areas of “sudden slickness” throughout our trails this time of year.
Please note, a ticket or pass is REQUIRED to access the trails today. We will have someone in the ticket cube, and you can buy and print tickets and passes right there! Pro tip: Buy yours ahead of time HERE, and load it onto your existing Mountain Card OR come get your fresh card today at our ticket pickup box. The only uphill route today is through the gate at the Wilderness Lift Shack.

Please abide by all trail and mountain signage, but see trail report below for open/close trail status as of last report.
