Frequently Asked Questions

October 12 Update

We will teach your kids (and you) to ski this season at Bolton Valley! We anticipate taking bookings for our Season Long Ski & Ride Programs within the next week, so be on the lookout for an announcement with more detail on that. 

-Season long programs will be adapting to COVID by offering half day sessions.  If you’d like to have a full day of skiing, enroll in the morning and afternoon session!  However, please bear in mind there will be a break between sessions during which time no supervision or lunch service will be offered as part of the season long program.

-Current rules for childcare include a guideline against physical contact.  As a result, group lessons and season long programs will be limited to children who can ride the lift safely by themselves.

Season Long Programs will be offered for children 7 years old (on the 1st day of the Program) and above this year. Children under the age of 7 will not be admitted into Season Long Programs this season, but:

-Private lessons for children who need assistance riding lifts will be available when accompanied by a parent or other trusted adult.

All lesson and season long programs will meet outside on snow.

All bookings will be done online or by phone – no in person bookings will be available this year. 

-Physical distancing will be practiced in all lessons – which means there will be minimal physical assistance from instructors.

Introductory Lessons

For those that are brand new to the sport!

Ridge Runners & Riders

Ages 7-12

Bolton Valley’s season-long weekend instructional program for families who choose to ski or ride every Saturday and/or Sunday. The program’s primary focus is on building a strong fundamental base to help participants enjoy a lifetime of skiing and riding. The Ridge Runner program aims to give each young athlete freedom to explore the many aspects of skiing and riding, such as parks, racing, woods, and any other terrain. Most importantly, however, we want to foster a life-long love of skiing and riding as a sport, a source of family fun, and a source of individual challenge and reward.

Throughout the 2019-20 season, we will aim to keep the same coach with the same group of kids consistently.  Periodically, the groups may bring in different coaches with varying areas of expertise to work on new skills.  Parents will receive regular communication throughout the year from our program supervisor, Adam Schini.  

BV FREERIDE TEAMS

Ages 10-18

The BV Freeride Team will be back for the 2020-21 season, offering big mountain and terrain park adventure for skiers and snowboarders.

WHAT IS FREERIDE?

The terms “freeride” and “big mountain” are synonymous and essentially refer to any skiing or snowboarding that takes place in natural terrain and snow conditions, and embodies a style of riding that utilizes the mountain’s many rocks, trees, bumps, and pitches in a creative way. It typically does not include groomed surfaces or man-made features, and it utilizes and combines skills and techniques from all other disciplines of skiing and snowboarding.

WHAT THE TEAM IS ALL ABOUT

We’ll be focusing on big-mountain style skiing and riding, risk assessment, and generally raising kids’ comfort levels on every terrain and in every condition the mountains can throw at them. They’ll spend a lot of time on the mountain – on the steeps and in the trees – as well as some time in the park and in the air, and exploring the backcountry.
