It's been a beautiful start to the new year here at Bolton Valley. After a stretch of grey weather, we've seen beautiful bluebird days, and some pretty magnificent sunsets. And that's without even mentioning the snow! Check out our weekend update.
Bored of the same old story? Want a little variety? Then head to The Keys. 'Cause we have gotten into the groove of incredible ski and ride weather. I must say, I'm very happy to sound like a broken record in the first week of January. This weekend looks to be....in the low 20s with a chance of snow. In other words, perfect.
Our snow total so far this season is over 109 inches and on the rise as I pen this update. Over the last seven days, we've received about 23 inches of snow. If you like powder, and I'm guessing you do, you need to pay us a visit this weekend.
Trails and Conditions:
Maybe you don't need to read my projections, maybe all you need to do is check out this gallery from Wednesday afternoon. Conditions are expected to remain outstanding. Snow surfaces are primarily powder and soft packed powder. We're expecting to have 55 trails open for you to enjoy, served by 5 lifts. Another high point is that we are starting to see some bumps on our steeper trails. You'll want to check out the trail section of the daily Snow Report to find out where those bumps are present. This week also saw the grand re-opening of our terrain park in its new location, Jungle Jib. It's open with 5 rail features and one jump, so have at it!
A note on Nordic as well, all of this new snow has really helped us build a solid base, and the backcountry is in incredible shape for adventures of all kinds. Be sure to keep up on conditions with our Nordic Snow Report. There you'll find skate and classic track grooming info as well as the wax of the day.
Even more excitement begins at 8, and since we know you're ready for some football, we'll be showing NFL Playoff games on the big screen. 101.3 ESPN will sponsor our apres party where you could win lift tickets, movie tickets and other great prizes.
And if you can't make it this weekend, our football theme continues next Saturday the 12th. Game on.
