Five Year Green Pass

Bolton Valley has always been a neighborhood ski community. Ralph DesLauriers founded Bolton Valley in 1966, with a commitment to serve local families. Much of the DesLauriers family still live slopeside at Bolton Valley and work (and ski) at the mountain daily. The DesLauriers’ know that it is the support of passionate Bolton Valley skiers and riders that makes this place so special.

Discussions about how to improve your experience at Bolton Valley always seem to start and end in the same place: with the snow. After all it’s the snow that draws everyone to the mountain each winter. While we can’t control how much natural snow falls, we do have the ability to make snow. But that snow comes with a cost.

We currently rent diesel compressors each season for our snowmaking operation. Relying on diesel is not exactly environmentally friendly. The solution is to purchase new high-efficiency, electric compressors. This will reduce the amount of diesel fuel that we use by an average of 25,000 gallons per year and allow us to extend our snowmaking season, ensuring a better base of snow all season long at Bolton Valley.

High efficiency, environmentally friendly, electric compressors are clearly the way to go to improve skier experience and do the right thing by the environment. But, as with most things, there is an upfront cost associated with it. This is where you come in.

In order to raise the money to purchase new high-efficiency, electric compressors, which will extend our snowmaking season and reduce our carbon impact, Bolton Valley is selling a limited number of Five Year Green Passes. The pass is $2200 and will allow you to ski for the next five seasons, giving you five seasons of snow filled fun, for less than the price of four.
