Drone Policy

Due to safety and individual privacy concerns for guests, employees, and resort property, Bolton Valley Resort prohibits the operation or use of unmanned aerial systems, or drones, by the general public including recreational users and hobbyists for filming or videotaping, as well as any drone use by media or journalists operating above or within Bolton Valley Resort boundaries without the prior written authorization from Bolton Valley Management. This prohibition extends to any devices launched or operated from Resort property, as well as any launched from private property outside of the Resort boundaries

Please contact resort representative Harold Herbert (803 434-6849/hherbert@boltonvalley.com) or Keith Chase (802 434-6812/kchase@boltonvalley.com) if you have any questions or if you seek prior authorization to operate any aerial drones. 

Any authorized operation of aerial drones may be governed by Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) rules and regulations, local law enforcement, as well as those policies separately established by this Resort, which may include certification, training, insurance coverage, indemnification requirements, and waivers or releases of liability. Any violation of this policy may involve suspension of your skiing or snowboarding privileges, or the revocation of your season pass, loss of memberships, as well as confiscation of any drone equipment, and may subject violators to any damages, including, but not limited to, damages for violations of privacy and/or physical or personal injuries or property damage, as well as regulatory fines and legal fees.
